Idris Elba gives Coronavirus Health Update

Idris Elba took to Twitter to give fans an update on his condition after revealing that both he and his wife have coronavirus.

On March 16, the British actor, producer and DJ revealed that he tested positive for COVID-19, but noted at the time that he was not experiencing any symptoms of the virus. Elba was in New Mexico working when his positive test result came through.

He’s since shared regular updates on social media, including revealing that his wife, Sabrina Dhowre, tested positive as well. His latest update came Wednesday night when he posted a photo of himself next to a window along with a caption about how he's coping.

“Hoping everyone is coping with this $@@!! Currently still quarantine.. Sab and I still feel ok so far with no changes,” Elba wrote. “Dr told us that after quarantine we will be immune for a certain time since our antibodies fought this. At some point we’d like to go home to London. Bsafe.”

The actor previously said that he experienced a headache and body aches on the day he was tested but has since bounced back from that. Based on his latest post, it seems the biggest hurdle for the star's recovery at the moment is getting out of quarantine and going home.
