Actor Idris Elba tested positive for the novel coronavirus COVID-19, he said on Twitter.
“I feel OK, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing – No panic.”
“Transparency is probably the best thing for this right now. If you’re feeling ill, or you feel like you should be tested or have been exposed, you should do something about it, alright? It’s really important.”
Days after actor Idris Elba revealed he had the coronavirus, his wife now says she too has tested positive.
Dhowre Elba wasn’t surprised, she said, because she was already in route to be with her husband when he was awaiting his test results and rushed to be by his side.
“I wanted to be with him. That’s the instinct of a wife. You want to go and take care.”
“I don’t feel anything that would come to what people would now expect to be a symptom of coronavirus, which is really strange. It might change in the coming weeks, and we’ll keep everyone updated. But it is worrisome that we’re sitting here, two people, and … we’re asymptomatic.”
