A married man has landed in serious trouble after catching coronavirus on a secret holiday trip to Italy with his mistress. He is now in isolation in the UK with his wife.
His unsuspecting wife who is in self-isolation is unaware of how her cheating husband caught the disease but the man confessed to medical coordinators in the north of England.
He told them that he contracted the virus while he was on a secret holiday with a mistress of his in the hotspot.
The ‘well-heeled’ male who The Sun reports works in a ‘high-flying job’ refused to name the mystery female he’s been seeing.
A source told the paper: ‘His case would be funny if it wasn’t quite so serious. The man confessed what he’d been up to in Italy, and that his wife has no idea.
‘She thinks he just picked up the disease on his business trip away. Although the patient admitted to medics what had happened, he said nothing would persuade him to name his mistress.’
It comes as the UK’s total number of confirmed cases sits at 1,543. Fifty-six people are known to have died from the virus in Britain.
He is expected to make a full recovery from the infection but is said to be in a ‘blind panic’ at the though of his wife finding out.
But the source said he’s relieved he got back before flights were cancelled and he had to explain to his wife where he’d been.
The Briton got out before Italy went into lockdown as the country – which is the hardest hit in Europe – saw 2,158 deaths.
