Jimmy and his wife seem to be waiting for their test results for COVID-19 after returning from their honeymoon in the Maldives. One of the guests at their wedding, Sally Hawach, a 30 weeks pregnant lady also tested positive. She went to her Instagram and captioned the post,
As you can imagine this is extremely stressful. I am 30 weeks pregnant and have a 2yo and a 1yo. My 1yo is showing signs of COVID also and is extremely sick. I am very distressed at the thought of having possibly infected anyone. I have contacted everyone I think I have been in touch with. But please if you have been in contact with me since March 6th or anyone with COVID or you show signs of sickness please self isolate.
She moreover added in her caption,
Self isolate anyway. If you’ve been in touch with a confirmed case and show signs of COVID please do a test immediately. COVID is serious. COVID can be lethal and it is spreading fast. Let’s stay calm but please also take isolation seriously and look out for those around us. Sending love to all.
Their wedding ceremony at the venue also caused problems for the owner of the venue as the government has stopped their business so that the infection doesn’t affect more people.
What did the Bridegroom Said?
The bridegroom of the wedding, Jimmy Niggles aka Scott Maggs said the news,
turned our world upside down, we just did not see it coming. Throughout all this our priority was to bunker down and take care of each other, to keep in contact with everyone and try to get through all the craziness … it has been a hectic and difficult time …, it was not what we were expecting to have to deal with after our wedding, which was perfect.
Niggles and his wife were not expecting anything like this coming to them. After the guests at their wedding found positive, the news shocked the whole world. There started people coming confirming their COVID-19 cases on their social media. During an interview with SMH on Friday afternoon, Scott revealed:
It’s insane. We were kissing and hugging people all night. We can’t explain it let alone believe it. Well, We started planning the wedding months ago. There was no hysteria or bans on March 6, it just wasn’t on the radar.
