Won't somebody think of the adulterers! Is it possible to continue an affair during COVID-19?

Wouldn’t it be nice if something good came out of this terrible time? (Posed picture)

But what about the adulterers?

Nobody seems to give a damn about the chaos that the coronavirus crisis will cause to all those people having illicit affairs. Where's their grant? And before you get all upset about me taking the mickey out of this crisis, just remember one thing. We all own this crisis. It can take away any one of us, and as a 47-year -old asthmatic I'm on the higher-than-others risk list. So, yes, I do think I have a right to take the mickey.

All I can do is keep washing my hands, distance myself from others, and just hope that the bastard thing doesn't somehow sneak in through my letterbox and do me in while I'm sleeping.
