Actor Idris Elba and James Bond movie actress Olga Kurylenko have announced that they tested positive to coronavirus.
Olga Kurylenko was the first to break the news about her test result which she did after falling ill for a week.
She shared: “Locked up at home after having tested positive for Coronavirus. I’ve actually been ill for almost a week now. Fever and fatigue are my main symptoms. Take care of yourself and do take this seriously!”.
Actor Idris Elba has announced that he has tested positive for Covid-19.
The star of Luther and The Wire said on Twitter “I feel okay”, and does not have any symptoms.
Elba, 47, said he has been isolated since finding out he was exposed to the virus. “Stay home people and be pragmatic,” he said. “I will keep you updated on how I’m doing. No panic.”
Elba, who posted a video also featuring his wife Sabrina Dhowre, said she has not been tested and is “doing okay”.
Elba said he got tested after finding out on Friday that he had been in contact with someone who had the virus. “This is serious,” he said. “Now is the time to really think about social distancing, washing your hands.”
Elba told fans to remain “really vigilant”. He added: “Transparency is probably the best thing for this right now. If you’re feeling ill, or you feel like you should be tested, or if you’ve been exposed, do something about it.”
This is coming a week after Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson announced that they tested positive for coronavirus while working in Australia.
