The saying "Love can bloom on a battlefield" is often used to depict wholesome acts in grim situations.
Let's look at one such incident involving the bonds of holy matrimony amid the fear of coronavirus outbreak.
Thousands of couples tied the knot in a mass Unification Church wedding despite growing concerns over the spread of the coronavirus outbreak in South Korea.
Some couples were seen in facemasks while tieing the knot. South Korea has recorded 24 cases of the novel coronavirus outbreak that emerged in neighbouring China.
The church founded by Sun Myung Moon went ahead with the event because it had been "four years in the making" as part of the celebrations of the 100th anniversary of the founder's birth.
Festivals, graduation ceremonies, and K-pop concerts have been cancelled over fears large events could facilitate virus transmission, and authorities have asked religious groups to co-operate in preventing it spreading.
