British actor Idris Elba announced on Monday in a message posted on Twitter that he was diagnosed with coronavirus.
“This morning I was tested positive at Covid-19. I feel good, I have no symptoms for the moment, but I have been quarantined since I discovered the possible exposure to the virus. Stay home and be pragmatic. I will keep you informed of mine. Don’t panic, “he wrote.
In a video that accompanies the actor’s text, his wife, Sabrina, can be seen without a protective mask. “She has not been tested and she is feeling well,” said Idris Elba.
He said he was isolated after contacting a patient on Friday. He did a test and found out the result on Monday.
“It’s serious and it’s time to think about social distance, to wash our hands. There are people out there who have no symptoms and can easily transmit the disease.”
Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, and Olga Kurylenko are other actors diagnosed with coronavirus.
