Not to be insensitive or anything, but we would be lying if we didn't admit that this story of a cheating husband who caught the coronavirus while on a trip to Italy with his mistress made us laugh. It's not funny that he caught COVID-19, because the coronavirus isn't funny, and now that he has it, he can spread it to others. But can you blame us for finding it amusing that it feels like he's being punished for running around on his wife? It just feels like some kind of punishment he's getting for being a cheater. Even his health care providers think it is sort of amusing, since they are the ones who shared the story.

"This patient is the talk of public health officials," a source said. "His case would be funny if it wasn't quite so serious." The only reason that public health officials even know what happened is because the cheater in question confessed everything to them. He's terrified, but not because of his health. "He's in a blind panic, but more about his adultery being exposed rather than his health." Keep reading to learn more about the consequences of having an affair during a pandemic.

Well, understandably, his name has not been released. We do know that he is from England, in his late 30s, and is "well-heeled and with a high-flying job." In other words, he has money and an important-ish job. We also know that he told his wife he was going on a business trip, but not a trip overseas.

While his wife thought he was traveling for business, the husband and his mistress took off to Italy to get down to business, so to speak. “He thought he had the perfect alibi to carry out his affair, but hadn’t reckoned on the coronavirus meltdown,” said the source. “The patient is just relieved he got home before flights were canceled--that would have taken some explaining.” That man really is lucky that he got out of Italy because the country is now in lockdown.

Once he was back in England, he went to the hospital because he had coronavirus symptoms. He was tested, and sure enough, he tested positive for COVID-19. He ended up telling the whole story of his affair to his health care providers.

According to the source, "Despite his infection he is expected to survive the outbreak, unlike his extra-marital relationship.” It’s unclear what is going on with his mistress and whether or not she contracted COVID-19 as well, because he refuses to name her. Hopefully, she’s sought care herself and is self-isolating.

Well, believe it or not, she still doesn’t know that the husband caught COVID-19 while on a trip with his mistress. As far as she knows, he caught it on the fake business trip he told her he was going on. She is now self-isolating in their fancy home. It’s really rather awful that, because of her husband’s shenanigans, she is now in danger of contracting COVID-19 herself. That part of the story isn’t even a little bit amusing.
