A Chinese hospital doctor has got married in a whirlwind 10-minute ceremony so he could return to work and continue treating coronavirus victims.
The whirlwind wedding took place in the city of Heze in the eastern Chinese province of Shandong with the groom’s parents and an officiator present, according to local media.
Reports said the whole wedding was shortened to less than 10 minutes so the unnamed groom, who works as a hospital doctor, could continue helping infected patients.
The young groom did not even have time to eat a meal or enjoy a slice of wedding cake as he had to travel to the city of Jinan located in the same province.
The groom said the wedding date of 31st January was already set aside for the couple’s big day, but the outbreak of coronavirus dramatically altered their plans.
The couple wanted to postpone the wedding, but both sets of parents believed they should go ahead with a small ceremony, according to reports.
They even decided to not invite any relatives or friends to reduce the risk of infection.
Photos show the cute couple wearing face masks as they tie the knot.
