A wedding in India has become the catalyst of the spread of the coronavirus after the 30-year-old groom infected over a hundred guests on his wedding day.
Following this news, KAMI learned that the groom has passed away two days after his wedding and that the man has shown and developed a high fever before the occasion.
Furthermore, the groom was said to have been cremated without a coronavirus test.
In their efforts to help control the spread of the virus, health officials in India have tested over 360 people from Paliganj and the towns of Bihta and Naubatpur.
According to the report by The Indian Express (authored by Santosh Singh), those who have been infected were either the 30-year-old groom's family relatives and guests.
One relative was also interviewed as to why the wedding still pushed through despite the groom's current condition to which he revealed, “Even though he was feeling unwell by June 14 and wanted the wedding deferred.
"Family heads from both sides advised against it, citing huge financial losses if the arrangements had to be canceled."
Another relative also shared that they were concerned for the groom but "prayed that it was not COVID infection."
On June 19, close relatives were tested for the virus and 15 tested positive for COVID-19.
Chiranjeev Pandey, a Paliganj Block Development Officer, said, "Our first priority now is to prevent the infection and break the chain. We have sealed parts of the neighboring Meetha Kuan, Khagari and some parts of the sub-urban marketplace of Paliganj."
