Women in PPE kit gets married with Covid Positive man in Hospital: Kerala
| Monday | 26th April, 2021
Both the district collector and hospital authorities granted permission for the function adhering to strict COVID protocols.
Time and tide wait for none, not even coronavirus. And this prompted Abhirami to wear her PPE kit instead of the traditional bridal wear and tie the nuptial knot with her covid-infected fiance as the families did not want to skip the auspicious "muhurtham."
"Muhurtham" is the auspicious time fixed for weddings and other new initiatives.
With the Personal Protection Kit (PPE) replacing the traditional silk saree and other wedding paraphernlia, the 23-year-old bride married the virus-positive groom, admitted to a government hospital in the coastal Alappuzha district.

Abhirami, a native of Thekkan Aryad, donned the disposable wear and get married at a COVID ward of the Alappuzha Vandanam medical college on Sunday.
Sarathmon, working in the Gulf, and his mother Jijimol had been admitted to the hospital recently after they tested positive for the virus.
Though he had placed himself in quarantine after arriving here from the Middle East for the wedding and showed no symptoms for the initial 10 days, the two developed breathing difficulty on Wednesday evening.
They tested positive for the virus at a private hospital at Thathampally and were later shifted to the COVID ward of the medical college, family sources said.
As both the families wanted to carry out the wedding ritual on the pre-fixed "muhurtham" (auspicious time of a day), they approached the authorities with the request to get married at the hospital itself.
