Wedding in a knot, groom missing

A groom, known only as Deng, is all smiles as he watches his wedding on a cellphone via live-streaming from a hotel ballroom. The man from Urumqi of China's Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region is banned from entering the venue after he failed to show a negative result of the nucleic acid test taken within 48-hour.

Her husband was missing as he was sitting outside the wedding venue because the result of his Covid-19 test was late and he was “banned” from entering.
