A postin wedding that took place in a luxurious neighborhood in Montevideo, Uruguay, has become the focus of infection for 44 people who were infected with the fearsome COVID-19.

The wedding was held on March 7th and although some 500 guests attended it, according to local sources, the contagion, as some suspect, is responsible: it would be a fashion designer who attended the celebration after arriving from Madrid and despite having a fever.

The person in charge would be Carmela Hontou, 57, who not only defended her decision to attend the party when she was interviewed by the Argentine portal Infobae, but has also confessed that before the wedding she had lunch with her 87-year-old mother - that is, one of the groups most vulnerable to respiratory disease caused by the coronavirus - and who also went to another lunch "where there were many people."

"That is ridiculous, do you know how many people were on that plane?" Hontou winced when questioned about her decision to go to the party and to get sick. The woman even confessed she had felt bad before traveling and that was why she had called a doctor even while in Madrid. "I couldn't even speak, I had 41 [centigrade] fever," emphasized the woman who returned to Uruguay on February 22.

As a result, the woman who helps him at home and his two children, among many others, have been infected with COVID-19.

The case is so serious that the administrators where Hontou lives filed a complaint against him with the Interior Ministry because, according to them, although the designer is in quarantine, her two children "enter every day, spend several hours indoors with their mother. and then they continue making their lives as if nothing happened, being in contact with the rest of the population ", according to MontevideoPortal.com.

The complaint was filed with Alejandro Machado, a Flagrancia prosecutor who took a statement from a complainant and the doormen of the building.

The events have triggered a nervous crisis in the woman who this Thursday was admitted to the emergency unit of the British Hospital in Montevideo, according to the same portal. "Carmela called because of a nervous breakdown," he told himself. "No one understood anything."

For his part, this Thursday, Luis Lacalle Pou, president of Uruguay, told a press conference that the South American country has 94 confirmed cases of COVID-19.
