In total, 400 people were tested for the virus. The people who turned out to be sick were taken to a hospital.
The groom would have been ill before the wedding on June 15, CNN reports. His situation would have deteriorated quickly. He traveled 1,000 kilometers to reach the place where he got married. There, his family took him to a doctor, but he was not tested for the coronavirus and his symptoms were not reported to the authorities. “The family has not told anyone about his ill health,” said a spokesman for the state where the ceremony took place.
After the wedding, the man was taken to the hospital, but he collapsed on the way and was pronounced dead on arrival. The investigation into how many people were at the wedding and with whom they came into contact is in full swing. “The 80 people who tested positive were not all necessarily at the wedding. Some of them have come into contact with guests and this is how the virus was passed on. ”
In India, more than 600,000 people are infected with the coronavirus.
