Idris Elba Shares in Video That He Has Tested Positive for Coronavirus

Idris Elba is the latest actor to announce that he has tested positive for coronavirus, joining Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, and a growing list of people who are now self-quarantining.

He shared a video on Twitter in which he describes how it happened, and also offers a realistic sense of the need to be cautious. The actor shared:

“This morning I tested positive for Covid-19. I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus.”

You can watch the video below. As the virus continues to spread, I’m sure more and more news like this is going to flooding the internet. It’s strange… I never thought I’d be reporting on this kind of stuff on GeekTyrant, yet here I am. We wish Elba the best. Stay safe out there everyone!
