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. pic.twitter.com/Lg7HVMZglZ — Idris Elba (@idriselba) March 16, 2020
In Idris' video, he urged others to really take social distancing seriously and to be mindful that not everyone shows symptoms but could still be spreading the disease and be "vigilant" about washing your hands.
