In China, quarantine is almost canceled: the authorities lifted the ban on marriages.

"My favorite works at the airport," said Peng Jin, a newlywed from Wuhan. "He continued to work during the epidemic. He had a car pass and he could drive wherever he wanted. That is, he could come to my Hankou quarter. He really wanted to bring me food and drinks, because during the epidemic we were not allowed to go to the store. But I didn’t wanted him to expose himself once again to the risk of infection and always refused. That's why we didn't see each other for more than 2 months."

The official marriage ceremony took place at Wuhan City Hall on 11 April. Now the newlyweds are preparing a traditional reception scheduled for early May. However, the number of guests will be small and most likely the celebration will take place in a small family circle in the house of the young head of the family, as the ban on mass gatherings still remains in place in Hubei province.
