Idris Elba got back his coronavirus test, and it ain’t good news.
The actor says he’s contracted COVID-19, and he’s placed himself in self-quarantine. Actually, Idris says he’s been on lockdown since Friday. What’s interesting about his case is he says he wasn’t experiencing ANY symptoms.
Idris says, “I got tested because I realized I was exposed to someone who had also tested positive.” He says he’s quarantining for now with his wife, Sabrina … although she hasn’t been tested.
He added, “There are people out there who aren’t showing symptoms and that can easily spread it … this is real.”
You’ll recall, when Tom Hanks announced last week he and Rita Wilson had tested positive … he said they at least had some indication — body aches and other common cold-like symptoms.
No such warnings for Idris … but he says, so far, he and Sabrina are feeling okay. Fingers crossed.
