A married man who has been quarantined in the United Kingdom after he tested positive for the coronavirus contracted the virus during his trip to Italy with his mistress. The man confessed before the public health coordinators in the north of England on how he picked up the virus during his secret trip to Italy, reports The Sun.
According to the reports, an unidentified man, who is in his late 30s informed his wife that he was on a business trip to the United Kingdom. On his return, the man tested himself for COVID-19 symptoms and his results were positive.
During his confession to the doctors, the man revealed that he had an affair with a woman but refused to reveal her identity. While the man has been quarantined, his wife has isolated herself at their home in the north of England.
The man confessed what he had been up to in Italy and that his wife has no idea, the report said. Reportedly, the wife thinks that her husband caught COVID-19 on her business trip.
“Despite his infection, he is expected to survive the outbreak, unlike his extra-marital relationship. 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 cancelled – that would have taken some explaining,” a source close to the patient said to the Sun.
The report also revealed the man to have a “high-flying job”. However, he has refused to name the woman he was on the Italy trip with. “Nothing would persuade him to name his mistress,” said the report. The man is likely to make a full recovery.
The report further added the man was in a panic state not because of his health but more with the fact that his extramarital affair may be exposed. A nationwide lockdown has been instituted in Italy, which has witnessed nearly 60 per cent of the deaths due to COVID-19.
