Who is this man?
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.
What happened in Italy did not stay in Italy.
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.
When he got back to England, he went to the hospital and spilled the beans.
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.
What about the cheater’s wife?
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.
