Hollywood superstar Idris Elba has delivered some headline-generating news. The movie heavyweight went online Monday to announce he has tested for COVID-19.
Idris went to his social media pages to break the huge news. Elba revealed he received his test results today after recently coming into contact with someone with coronavirus.
“Hey, what’s up guys? So look, this morning I got some test results back for the coronavirus and it came back positive. Yeah, and it sucks. Listen, I’m doing okay. Sabrina hasn’t been tested and she’s doing okay and I didn’t have any symptoms. I got tested because I realized I was exposed to someone who also had tested positive. I found out last Friday that they were tested positive and I quarantined myself and got tested 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. So now is a real time to be real diligent about washing your hands and keeping your distance.”
The news immediately caught rap star 50 Cent‘s attention. Fif went online and said Elba’s results have forced him to stay indoors.
“Oh sh*t, I’m not coming back outside. I’m done with all this sh*t. I need a drink.”
