    Groom with coronavirus may have infected 113 people at his own wedding

    https://nypost.com/2020/07/02/groom-...s-own-wedding/

    An Indian man who traveled home for his wedding last month may have infected 113 people at the ceremony, a report said.

    The 31-year-old man ' who died two days after the wedding ' traveled to Paliganj from New Delhi for the June 15 celebration attended by more 350 friends and family, according to The Indian Express.

    The groom had pleaded with his family to stop the wedding because he was sick ' but he was denied.

    '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,' a relative told the outlet.

    Two days after the wedding, the man's condition became serious and he was rushed to the hospital but died on the way. The family cremated his body, the report said.

    A relative said they were less concerned about the virus because 'rural areas are almost COVID-free.'

    Local authorities are now attempting to prevent the infection from spreading any further.

    All close relatives who attended the wedding were tested. The bride was not among those who tested positive.

    Indian weddings are huge affairs and I imagine it would be difficult to make the decision to cancel, but in this age of COVID19 it seems crazy to proceed with the groom so sick. Hindsight is 20/20 I suppose....
    You are talking to a woman who has laughed in the face of death, sneered at doom and chuckled at catastrophe.

    They probably didn't want to break from tradition.
    People will turn a blind eye to fact based evidence if it means stopping them from doing what they want to do.
