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?

  1. My favorite fucking actor
    Get well idris 👋

  2. is the wifey also positive? cos if not then this is an act … positive people are to separate themselves from the negative so we stop the spreading and have musk on

  3. Sipho Sekonyane

    Dude gets a deadly virus and his first thought is that it sucks? Secondly, why is he not quarantined? Naaaaaah fam….you may fool some people some times, but no ways you can fool all people. Nope.

  4. HalleluYAH Praise YAHUAH

    The scariest part is not having symptoms. Then when you do have systems you cannot tell if its a common cold, the flu, or virus. Sheesh…

  5. this nigga supposed to be sick and she all up on his azz

  6. Who says black people can’t get exposed to Coronavirus?😅🤣

  7. He don’t have no damn virus smh

  8. bustabarbiegirl

    I pray for your speedy recovery Idris. Also I pray we see the end of this pandemic soonest. Kudos to all the people putting themselves on the line to combat and limit the spread of the covid-19 coronavirus.

  9. you all do realize he is an actor right?…..

  10. I smell bullshit on his breath

  11. You’re a great actor bro!♥️💯🥰

  12. They’re lying. Tom hanks too. Pretty poor acting. Wife in the shot too. Wake up people. The virus is real – most likely created.

  13. Oh God no!! Not a famous actor!!! 😂😂

  14. Why are they lying ?!!! They paid him top dollar to come out and pretend. Trust me , they are at home CHILLIN and laughing at us. They noticed that people were pointing out that no black people were getting this so they did this to scare y’all even more!! Listen , don’t trust these people. NEVER trust an ACTOR. These ppl act for a living and are paid millions to deceive the collective. Please WAKE UP. I can tell by the wife’s body language this is a LIE!!! She’s trying her best to play sad and trying not to laugh. This is unbelievable.

  15. Alot of people have this thing and have no clue!

  16. Mediocre Cousins

    So you have the Virus but the woman next to you hasn’t been tested? Basically you are giving her the Virus . Doesn’t make sense

  17. Ultimate Endurance

    This is scary

  18. Does he know what isolation means? What is that woman doing there???

  19. passion to fly by IshaanRaizada

    I think he is lying because he is contaminating his wife too
    He has no symptoms of covid 19
    He should be in the isolation ward if he was positive of covid

  20. So many “sick” people who are completely fine and nobody asks questions? If i put a labcoat on will people just listen to whatever i say too?

  21. Get well soon ! 🙏

  22. It’s funny how these celebrities are getting this virus but immediately get the cure. No one is suffering more than the poor. These rich and famous ppl are doing good while the rest of us mere humans have to supposedly wait for the cure. The cure ppl,, is already here, the problem is is that they’re trying to kill off the poor. Population control. We’re scrambling stocking up on things to the point that ppl are getting violent while these celebrities have no worries in the world. Do I feel sorry for them? Y. They get the help wen they need it now what I do feel sorry for is that Italian mother and wife who lost her husband to this virus, she has it and they’re denying her help. Shame on you. Donald Trump claims to help the Americans…how r u helping? I’m gonna tell u how u can help. Start testing, and for those who do test positive, give us the vaccine.

  23. damn this virus!

  24. This is soooooo fake! lol

  25. He don’t have no damn virus smh

  26. Why in the hell is there somebody anybody in the room with him??? Duh!

  27. Reina Macarena

    HOLLYWEIRD! Why is his wife in the video looking like a hostage?🤔 HEY Idris, you qualify for HIPPA. No need to tell the world your business. It’s between you, your family and the medical team😨

  28. He’s positive, she’s not, but they stand very close each other ???🤔🤔🤔

  29. Daniel Solomon

    So if you get the Corona virus, you basically look and feel a little under the weather?

  30. Denise Bernardez

    I am praying for you baby praying for you 🙏🙏 Amen

  31. Why did he feel the need to even post this, acting like he got cancer or something.

  32. As he’s talking this chick is constantly touching her face and mouth, and right next to him

  33. Holy cow his wife or girlfriend is very pretty and sure doesn’t follow the no face and lip touching rule.

  34. If the coronavirus is as bad as they say and the government feels they have the power to tell me not to travel, to quarentine they should tell these companies with access to test that they can not be making a profit. The test should go to those most in need of them and most at risk of spreading. NO NURSE NOT 1 i know has been tested cuz test are unavailable how is Idris Elba and entire NBA teams getting them??? My freedoms are being taken away why wealth privilege continues to be put ahead of public health.

  35. Anybody notice how guilty she looks? Something is definitely very fishiy here….

  36. you an’t keeping distance with ya wif, y’?

  37. False Horizons

    Disease with no symptoms = No disease

  38. graffitypsycho

    Why is she even there? If you are concern, don’t have people around you! OMG its like dumb and dumber up in this video.

  39. MySisterIsAFoodie

  40. changetocome100
