As per report a groom, who arrived in kerala from china for his wedding two weeks ago, had to postpone the ceremony on the insistence of health authorities as the youth is presently under home quarantine for the novel coronavirus. Meanwhile the marriage had been scheduled for tuesday at Kadangode grama panchayat in thrissur district. However, panchayat sources said they learnt about the proposed ceremony only a day before the wedding.
Sources stated "We came to know about the wedding on february 3. The health inspector immediately contacted the district Medical Officer (DMO) and we sent a letter to Deputy Director. Following the intervention of the officials, the family postponed the wedding". Perhaps the groom was told by the health authorities that he cannot get married as part of the health protocol of the government, which stipulates that those returning from china have to strictly report to the health authorities and quarantine themselves for a 28-day period at home.
Moreover the family, however, conducted a small ceremony. A local health official said a reception was held in the evening, although the groom did not participate. Apparently the bride was garlanded by the groom's mother and brought to the hall before the guests and a traditional sadya (feast) was arranged for the guests. Currently the life of the groom is a big question mark and his family members are very much worried about the situation.
