Idris Elba has tweeted that he’s tested positive for coronavirus, joining Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and a growing list of people who are self-quarantining.
Here’s his Tweet, in which he describes how it happened, and gives a realistic sense of the need to be cautious.
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

You hate to see anyone test positive, but much the way that Hanks did when he discussed his positive test, Elba might help demystify this terrible crisis. 🙁☹️😔😞
