Cheating Husband Contracts COVID-19 During Secret Trip To Italy With His Mistress
By Stephanie Ogbogu
A cheating husband from North England got more than he bargained for after he lied to his wife in order to embark on a secret rendezvous with his mistress.
The unnamed man in his late 30s told his wife that he was going on a business trip to the United Kingdom. Instead, he and his mistress took a romantic getaway to Italy, one of the places that has been hit the hardest by the novel coronavirus.
When the man returned home, he visited a local hospital after experiencing coronavirus symptoms. It was there that he tested positive for COVID-19. According to the man, he believes he picked up the virus while on the secret trip with his mistress, however, he refuses to reveal the name of the woman he is having an affair with.
“Nothing would persuade him to name his mistress,” a source tells The Sun.
Unfortunately for the man’s wife, she is still in the dark about how her husband contracted the disease. Although she is self-isolating in the couple’s lavish home, she is under the impression that he picked it up during his business trip. Her husband is expected to recover, however, as the news spread of his infidelities, his marriage not.
“Despite his infection, he is expected to survive the outbreak, unlike his extra-marital relationship,” says a source. “He thought he had the perfect alibi to carry out his affair but hadn’t reckoned on the coronavirus meltdown. The patient is just relieved he got home before flights were canceled – that would have taken some explaining.”
Over 31,000 cases of coronavirus have been reported in Italy. At least 2,500 people have died.
