Idris Elba posts COVID-19 update and sends hopeful message
Fans were really sad and a bit shocked to see their favorite celebrity, Idris Elba, contract the coronavirus. Soon after his diagnosis, his wife Sabrina Dhowre Elba tested positive for the viral disease as well. Though the couple is staying strong and we got another update. Idris Elba posted a candid update regarding his and his wife’s health on Twitter. He has posted some updates previously as well and has even responded to allegations that he’s lying about his condition.
Idris Elba is happy to share that he and Sabrina are doing okay
The actor starts off the news sharing that everyone is doing all right:
We’re both doing okay, still asymptomatic. Pass the quarantine period. But we’re a little bit stuck in limbo. We can’t get a flight back home so we have to just sit still for a little bit but other than that we’re okay and we’re so thankful for that. I think the worst of it is probably past.
Idris Elba shares that they are still asymptomatic. That means they are still showing no signs of the coronavirus. But the two are over their quarantine period and once they are able to get a flight back home, they will likely return home soon. Expressing gratitude, Idris mentions that the worst is over.
Their quarantine period is a bit tough but they’re staying strong
True fans of the couple and their close friends would know that Idris Elba and Sabrina cannot stay still. That’s why they were having a bit of a hard time but they were maintaining an optimistic attitude:
It’s weird coz I never sit still. (chuckles) I never sit still. Sabrina never sits still either and I think she’s finding it harder. Having a bit of cabin fever. But we’re both good. Mentally, we’re just trying to stay optimistic.
The actor is hoping that everyone is keeping a hopeful mindset as well
Moreover, Idris Elba is really hoping that everyone out there is staying optimistic and not freaking out:
Mentally, we’re just trying to stay optimistic. I hope you guys are too man. Keeping yourself you know sane, not getting too worried or too panicked. Take it from me man, I was definitely getting to see the worst of it as an asymptomatic. But thankfully I came through and you can too.
Well, Idris keeping on a can-do attitude is definitely going to inspire his fans to not lose hope over the COVID-19 coronavirus (SARS-CoV2) pandemic. We all must remain cautious and careful, but it won’t do any of us good if we completely lose our minds and despair.
He also mentioned how some of the people out there might be struggling financially and Idris is encouraging them to hold on and not give up.
Idris Elba appreciates the healthcare staff!
The actor made an important point to include a special thank you note to all the doctors, nurses and people on the front lines fighting this vicious and viral disease:
Just bit a shoutout to everyone that’s like helping other people especially the doctor and the nurses and healthcare people that are doing their thing. You lot are amazing. And should be fully appreciated.
He also sends appreciation for all the fans that are sending him and his wife well wishes.
