British actor, Idris Elba, has tested positive to COVID-19.
Elba who made this known on Monday via his twitter handle @Idriselba however said he has not shown any symptoms yet.
“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,” he said.
In the video he uploaded, Idris Elba further explained that he got tested after discovering he was exposed to someone who had also tested positive.
He said that he isolated himself after finding out about the other person’s results and “got a test immediately.”
“It sucks,” he admitted. “Looks, this is serious. Now’s the time to really think about social distancing, washing your hands.”
Elba’s case is coming after Tom Hanks revealed last week he and wife, Rita Wilson, tested positive for Covid-19 and are also quarantined.
