While the infected persons have been admitted at hospital, 127 persons who had attended the wedding have been quarantined.

One of the infected, the grandfather of the groom, died due to the infection. A case under Section 51 of the Disaster Management Act and other sections of the Indian Penal Code of endangering ordinary people’s lives has been registered against the groom and his family.
