A man reportedly caught coronavirus after he traveled to Italy to cheat on his wife with his Italian mistress.

According to the UK news outlet, The Sun, the man's wife is also in quarantine but still has no idea how she caught the virus.

The outlet reports that he told public health coordinators in the north of England how he picked up the deadly virus during the secret trip abroad. The man remains unidentified, The Sun says he is in his late 30s and that he told his wife he was away on a business trip in the UK -- she doesn't even know that he left the country.

He is described as "well-heeled and with a high-flying job," and told doctors that the affair was with a woman, but has refused to name her.

His wife is currently in quarantine in the couple "lavish" home in the North of England, blissfully unaware.
