The groom has died and nearly 100 people have been diagnosed with COVID-19 following a wedding in Bihar.


The 30-year-old groom, described in a CBS News report as a software engineer who worked in a Delhi suburb, is said to have traveled to his hometown of Paliganj in Bihar in mid-May. Soon after his arrival, he started showing coronavirus symptoms ahead of a June 15 wedding date.


Ultimately, more than 350 guests attended the wedding, followed two days later by the groom's death while being transported to the hospital. According to reports, his body was cremated "without informing authorities."


Earlier this week, India opened the Sardar Patel COVID Care Centre, which is now one of the largest hospitals in the world. Per Delhi government officials, the facility boasts 10,000 available beds.

本周早些时候,印度开设了Sardar Patel COVID护理中心,现在是世界上最大的医院之一。按照德里政府官员的说法,该设施拥有1万张床位。
