This pandemic that hits our Earth targets everybody; no matter if you are the wife of Canada’s Prime Minister or Forrest Gump and now the Black Superman itself, Idris Elba.
He got himself tested as he knew for a fact that he has been in contact with someone who has the virus. Idris also claims that he doesn’t feel much sickness but get tested either way to be sure which come back positive. Yesterday he posted in a Twitter Live video , answering some question from followers.
Idris was said to be exposed by the carrier on March 4 on a set filming a new project.
“We were really lucky to test very quickly because of the shortages of the test, but from my perspective it was the best thing to do immediately was to get tested because I was going to be around a lot of people starting this new film.” He said.
He continues to quarantine himself in his house. His wife, Sabrina Dhowre Elba are doing a “calculated risk” by staying in the same residence while awaiting for her results.
We hope for the best and may this pandemic that hits us all heal quickly.
Remember to keep social-distancing, don’t panic buy, and work from home if you can.
