Amid the outbreak of the deadly Coronavirus, a Chinese bride’s family was unable to attend the wedding in India due to the travel ban.
A Chinese woman married an Indian man in Bengal’s East Midnapore on Wednesday, but the family of the girl couldn’t be the part of the wedding.
The couple, who met seven years ago during a business deal in China, got married in a ceremony at the groom’s home.
“My family is happy and well but they couldn’t attend my wedding due to the virus scare. Flights between India and China have been suspended,” Jiaqi, the bride, told newswire ANI.
Asked if they will go back to China, Jiaqi said, “We will go back but do not know when. When everything is done, we will go there and complete the registry and everything,” she said.
Jiaqi’s husband Pintu said they will have a ceremony in China too. “We wanted to get married here. Her family couldn’t come due to coronavirus the outbreak. We will have another function later in China,” the groom said.
