“This morning I got some test results back for coronavirus and it came back positive,and it sucks.

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.

In the video, Idris Elba advises fans to practice social distancing and hand washing.

He said:

“I feel OK. I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus.”

“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.”

“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.”
