Idris Elba is joining the ranks as one of the latest celebrities to join the "COVID CLUB." The actor, who was named People Magazine's 33rd Sexiest Man Alive, just tested positive for the virus. He chose to take the test after exposure to the virus, as he shared in a Twitter post:
"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. (fist bump emojis) No panic."
He is not the first star to test positive. Oscar winner Tom Hanks and wife, Rita Wilson are quarantined in Australia with the virus after they were diagnosed while filming the latest Elvis biopic. But, Hanks reminded us there is no crying baseball and keeps fans updated and optimistic. Canadian Prime Minister, Justin Trudeau's wife, Sophie has also been diagnosed as well as Matthew Broderick's sister. Orlando Bloom is self-quarantined after his show, "Carnival Row" left the cast exiting Prague for America due to the coronavirus outbreak. We wish everyone a very speedy recovery, celebrity and otherwise. We are all champions for handling this one day at a time, except for those whom have over-hoarded stuff leaving nothing for everyone else. That is unacceptable!
