According to a Hindustan Times report, more than 100 people have tested positive in Paliganj sub-division of Patna district, out of which over 350 who have been tested upon contact tracing. According to health department officials, relatives who attended the wedding tested positive for the virus and apparently infected others.

The groom was a software engineer, who was based in Gurugram and had returned home for his marriage in the last week of May. After the ‘tilak’ ceremony, he started showing symptoms of the disease. Also, on June 15, the date of the wedding, the groom was running a high fever and wanted the ceremony to be deferred, but family members gave him paracetamol tablets and told him to go through the rituals.

After two days of the wedding, his condition deteriorated significantly and family members rushed him to AIIMS, Patna, but he died on the way, Hindustan Times further reported. 

Without waiting much time, the body was cremated without the authorities being informed. Only after somebody telephoned the district magistrate and narrated the whole episode, this shocking incident came to light. After this news went viral, all close relatives of the deceased, who attended the wedding, were tested on June 19. Of which 15 tested positive, the health officials said.

Coming into action, a special camp was set up at the village where samples of 364 people were collected. Of them, 86 tested positive, the officials added.
