Groom dies of Covid-19 during his wedding, infects over 100 guests with virus


A groom in India with high fever during his wedding has died of Covid-19 and infected more than 100 other guests with the deadly virus. 

The groom has died on June 17 and was cremated without being tested for the disease. In a report published on Indian Express, the man was said to have been feeling sick and even asked for the wedding to be postponed. 

The family and the bride forced him to continue the wedding despite his condition, citing financial losses if it gets canceled. 

He was just asked to take painkillers and paracetamol instead just to get through the wedding. 

“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,” the groom’s relative was quoted as saying. 

The said wedding is now considered as one of the biggest Covid-19 chains of infections in India after 15 family members tested positive for Covid-19, and 113 guests.
