IDRIS ELBA Worried About Coronavirus Diagnosis
Idris Elba shocked the entire world when he announced earlier this week that he's been diagnosed with coronavirus.
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. pic.twitter.com/Lg7HVMZglZ— Idris Elba (@idriselba) March 16, 2020
The Pacific Rim and Thor star did a live stream to update his fans, saying he's glad that he got tested and shared his diagnosis to the world. "I certainly felt at the end of the day…that was the right thing to do, to share what we’re going through, because we ain’t the only ones." And while he still doesn't feel any symptoms, Idris said he's closely monitoring himself while on self-quarantine.
The 47-year-old British actor also revealed that he's worried about his condition, especially because he suffers from asthma. "I’m worried about having the virus, I’m worried about having asthma and how that can make things really complicated for me really quickly."
He continued: "I’m really worried about what's going on in the world, if I’m honest, I’m worried about how we’re dealing with it."
In the end, he thanked his fans for the outpour of support and promised to give everyone an update soon. You got this, Idris!
