Idris Elba Tested Positive for Corona Virus

   In a video posted on Twitter, Idris Elba revealed he has tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus.
"This morning I test positive for Covid 19," he wrote alongside the video. "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."
Speaking in the clip, Elba said he decided to get tested because he had been in contact with someone who had recently tested positive themselves. "I found out last Friday that they were tested positive, I quarantined myself and got a test immediately and got the results back today," he said. He cautioned his followers to take the situation seriously, especially since some individuals who tested positive do not show any symptoms. 
"We live in a divided world right now, we can all feel it—it's bullshit," he added. "This is real. I just wanted to share my news with you guys. ... Stay positive, and don't freak out."
