HOLLYWOOD — Idris Elba has contracted the coronavirus. The 47-year-old thespian said he tested positive for COVID-19 on Monday via Twitter. “This morning I tested positive for Covid 19,” Idris wrote. “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.” The actor also shared a video of himself with his wife, Sabrina, to disseminate a prolix elucidation. “I got tested because I realized I was exposed to someone who also tested positive,” Idris explained. “I found out last Friday that they were tested positive. I quarantined myself and got a test immediately and got the results back today.”

“Look, this is serious,” Idris continued. “Now is the time to really think about social distancing, washing your hands. Beyond that, there are people out there who aren’t showing symptoms that can easily spread it… So, now is a real time to be really vigilant about washing your hands and keeping your distance. Transparency is probably the best thing for this right now. If you’re feeling ill or you feel like you should be tested or you’ve been exposed — do something about it. It’s really important.”
“Look [we’re living] in a divided world right now,” he added. “We can all feel it. It’s been bullsh*t, but now is the time for solidarity. Now is the time for thinking about each other. There are so many people whose lives have been affected, from those who have lost people they loved to people that don’t even have it and have lost their livelihoods. This is real.”
Unfortunately, Idris ain’t the only Hollywood star infected.
Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have also tested positive.
Speaking of wife, Sabrina is reportedly virus-free.
But she’s all up in Idris’ countenance in the video.
Shouldn’t they practice social distancing?
