Recently, while the number of confirmed cases of the COVID-19 Omicron mutant virus has been rapidly increasing, a groom was confirmed to have been infected with COVID right before the wedding and had to participate in the wedding ceremony by video.


It seems that the couple chose this because they could not postpone the wedding.


On the 19th, a photo titled 'The current state of the wedding during COVID' is being shared through social networking services (SNS), etc.

At the wedding hall in the photo, only the bride is seen without the groom. The groom in a tuxedo is seen on the screen in the ceremony hall.


One netizen familiar with the situation wrote, "An acquaintance went to the wedding, and said that the groom was diagnosed with COVID so the bride held the ceremony without him." She added, "The groom's face was displayed on the screen during the wedding.."


Meanwhile, the government predicts that the COVID 19 epidemic will peak in Korea this week, or at the latest next week.


As of 9 p.m. on the 19th, there were close to 320,000 confirmed cases of COVID-19 across the country.


According to local governments, including Seoul, the number of confirmed cases of COVID-19 in 17 cities and provinces across the country from 0 am to 9 pm that day was 318,838.


44,280 fewer than the 336,118 at the same time the previous day.
