Idris Elba’s wife has tested positive for coronavirus, just a week after her husband revealed he has the virus.
“I wanted to be with him,” actress Sabrina Dhowre-Elba told Oprah Winfrey of her decision to isolate with her husband, saying she had the “instinct of a wife” to take care of him.
Both Idris and Sabrina say they feel healthy, despite the diagnosis.
“I don’t feel anything that would come to what people would now expect to be a symptom of coronavirus, which is really strange,” Sabrina said. “It might change in the coming weeks, and we’ll keep everyone updated.
“Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive,” Sabrina told Oprah in a FaceTime interview Saturday on her new Apple TV+ series Oprah Talks.
Idris said he “hasn’t witnessed any major symptom.
“It’s interesting and worrying that people are possibly carrying this disease and are seemingly okay, but can spread it easily,” he said.
