Idris Elba Tests Positive for Coronavirus

Idris Elba has been diagnosed with coronavirus.

The actor shared the news on Twitter on Monday, explaining that while he doesn’t have any symptoms, he decided to get tested after realizing he had been exposed to someone who had tested positive.

He found out about that person’s diagnosis on Friday, and immediately quarantined himself, he shared in a video.

Elba captioned the video, “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. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing 👊🏾👊🏾 No panic.”


Elba’s diagnosis is the latest in a string of celebrities who have tested positive for coronavirus, also known as COVID-19.
