#Coronavirus: English Actor, Idris Elba tested positive for COVID-19
Elba assures fans not to panic!
Idris Elba is the latest celebrity to test positive for coronavirus.
The 47-year-old year old announced the news in a Twitter video on Monday afternoon.
Elba said he’s doing OK and his wife Sabrina Dhwore Elba hasn’t been tested yet. The actor said he wasn’t showing any symptoms of Covid-19, but he was exposed to someone that tested positive for the virus. Elba said he has been quarantining himself since last Friday and got the news of the positive test result on Monday.
“This is serious, now is the time to think about social distancing,” said Elba in his Twitter video.
Shortly thereafter, a tweeter wrote:
‘Idris Elba said he showed no symptoms of coronavirus and he was tested positive. This shows you can be healthy and still carry the virus with risk of infecting someone else out there who’s responsive to harm and sickness. This is why you’re advised to stay home.’
The news of Elba’s positive test result come days after Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson tested positive for coronavirus in Australia.
Our prayers go out to Idris Elba and family as he has announced that he has tested positive for coronavirus.
