A man who has been given the name *Peter to protect his identity has opened up about how his cheating ways got him into trouble.
*Peter, a 33-year-old businessman from Johannesburg, contracted the coronavirus after he left his wife at home to visit his side chick.
His story was shared by W24's Joanna Zulu, who reported that *Peter has been having an affair for over a year now despite being married for 12 years.
*Peter revealed the lockdown has been taking a toll on his private life and business. He revealed that before the pandemic, he managed to juggle two relationships without trouble but it has gotten more complicated since lockdown began.
He told Zulu:
"The lockdown has made things very tricky for us. We can't even go on a weekend getaway or grab lunch or dinner at our favourite restaurants. We have been quite restricted."
*Peter said he had to visit his mistress at her home to spend some quality time together and a week later, he started experiencing Coid-19 symptoms.
His wife called their family doctor and both were tested for Covid-19. Luckily, *Peter's wife tested negative despite him getting a positive result.
He immediately phoned his girlfriend and a week after he tested positive, she started experiencing symptoms.
Both *Peter and his side chick have since tested positive and it turns out they were infected by her next-door neighbour who visited her at home.

*Peter revealed his wife still has no idea how he contracted the virus and is under the impression that he got infected at the office.
"I do feel bad that I would've put my wife's life on the line, but I'm relieved that I'm the only one tested positive. My girlfriend and I are recovering well, but to be honest, I regret my decision to see her."
The story has since got the attention of social media users, who had no sympathy with the unfaithful husband.
Sarah Anne Austin commented:
"Serves him right for cheating!"
Julia Norman wrote:
"He should be more ashamed of cheating on his faithful wife than anything else. Sies! If the story is to be believed, of course. He should rather fear other lurgies than the Coronavirus!"
Bernadette Karam added:
"Teach him a good lesson."
Meanwhile, Briefly.co.za previously reported Health Minister Dr Zweli Mkhize has updated the nation on the current statistics relating to the Covid-19 pandemic in SA. In a statement issued on Sunday evening, the Health Ministry confirmed another spike in cases:
"As of today, the cumulative number of confirmed Covid-19 cases in South Africa is 97 302 with 4 621 new cases identified."
*Peter is not the man's real name.
