In the midst of one of the greatest pandemics, greatest as in scale not as in likeability, many famous figures within the media are testing themselves for the new and deadly coronavirus. And Idris Elba is the newest case of celebrities supposedly testing positive.
“Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing. No panic.“
It’s good to see these people keep up hope and let the world know they should calm down a bit.
“I got tested because I realized I was exposed to someone who also tested positive,” he explained. “I found out last Friday that they were tested positive. I quarantined myself and got a test immediately and got the results back today.”
“Look, this is serious. Now is the time to really think about social distancing, washing your hands. Beyond that, there are people out there who aren’t showing symptoms and that can easily spread it. OK. So, now is a real time to be really vigilant about washing your hands and keeping your distance.”
Elba then finished by saying, “Look we’ve lived in a divided world right now. We can all feel it. It’s been bulls–t, but now is the time for solidarity. Now is the time for thinking about each other. There are so many people whose lives have been affected, from those who have lost people they loved to people that don’t even have it and have lost their livelihoods. This is real.”
