The bride wore a PPE kit during the ceremony after getting permissions from the district collector. The main reason for them to do so was to not miss out on the auspicious day, or 'muhuratam', a special time for Hindus to get married.
The groom's mother had also tested positive for COVID around the same time, and the ceremony took place in her presence in a small ward of the hospital.
On Monday, India recorded a total of 3,23,023 fresh cases in the country.
