A male Nurse in Indonesia was suspended after admitting to stripping off his personal protective equipment to have sex in a toilet with a man infected with COVID-19, according to Fox News.
“It is true that there has been a suspected incident of a same-sex relationship between a health worker and a COVID-19 patient at the Wisma Atlet Emergency Hospital,” said Asep Gunawan of the National Nurses Association.
The nurse “must follow legal processing,” the Indonesia Expat reported.
“This case has been transferred to the Central Jakarta Police. We have secured the health worker to become a witness and asked for further information,” said Lt. Col. Arh Herwin of the Regional Military Command.
“Meanwhile, the patient continues to undergo isolation at the Athlete’s House.”
The two men were later administered coronavirus tests. The patient was found to still be positive while the nurse tested negative, officials said.
If convicted, the men face prison sentences of up to 10 years.

The incident in Jakarta came to light when the patient boasted about the romp on his Twitter account Friday, according to the UK’s Sun.
He uploaded a screenshot of WhatsApp messages between the horny couple — including details about lubricants and the size of their genitals, the news outlet reported.
The patient also posted an image of the nurse’s PPE lying on the floor as the pair got it on.
