Sabrina Elba has confirmed that she has tested positive for the Corona virus.
Last week, her husband, Idris announced that he had been diagnosed with Covid-19 despite showing no symptoms.
Idris Elba was exposed to the disease while attending an event with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s wife, Sophie, who has also contracted the virus.
Speaking to Oprah during a live stream for her new Apple TV+ series Oprah Talks, Sabrina said:
“Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive. ‘I’m not surprised, as soon as I heard that Idris was potentially exposed. I was on my way anyway and I wanted to be with him, I think that’s an instinct as a wife you just want to go and take care.”
“We didn’t change the way we interacted, I could have made a decision to put myself in a separate room or maybe stay away and I’m sure people are making those decisions, they’re tough decisions to make. But I made the decision to want to be with him and still touch him.”
She also revealed :
“I don’t feel anything that would come to what people would now expect to be a symptom of coronavirus, which is really strange. It might change in the coming weeks, and we’ll keep everyone updated.’ Idris was recently forced to deny that he was in critical condition with the disease after rumours began to spread online.”
