Idris Elba Leaves Quarantine Period Two Weeks After Coronavirus Diagnosis, But Says Hes Now Stranded
Idris Elba has revealed that he has now passed quarantine after testing positive for Covid-19, but says he and his wife Sabrina Dhowre lba are stranded as they’re unable to catch a flight home.
Last month, the couple entered self-quarantine after contracting coronavirus, but the actor has said they are now both “asymptomatic”.
In a Twitter update posted on Tuesday night, he explained: “We’re both doing OK, still asymptomatic, and we’ve passed the quarantine period. 
“However, we’re a little bit stuck in limbo. We can’t get a flight back home so we just have to sit still for a little bit. But other than that, we’re OK, and we’re so thankful for that. I think the worst of it has probably passed.”My peeps👊🏾.. pic.twitter.com/gqea4S3zKD— Idris Elba (@idriselba) March 31, 2020Idris continued: “It’s weird because I never sit still. I never sit still, and Sabrina never sits still either. I think she’s finding it harder, she’s getting cabin fever, but we’re both good mentally, just trying to stay optimistic.
“I hope you guys are too, man. Keeping yourselves sane and not getting too worried and too panicked. Take it from me, man. I thought I was definitely going to see the worst of [coronavirus] as an asthmatic, but thankfully I came through, and you can too.”
He also gave a “big shout out” to healthcare workers helping those in need and “doing your thing” during the pandemic, noting: “You lot are amazing, and should be fully appreciated.
“And to everyone that’s going through hard times financially right now, man, you know, just bear up. This is going to be a tough time for everyone, but try and keep your head up, basically. Alright?
“[This was] just a note to say, we’re still here, hope you’re good, we’re going to fight this thing and everything’s going to be cool. Thank you for everyone that sends us love and thoughts, we really appreciate it.”Throughout his quarantine period, Idris has shared a number of video updates on social media with his followers, including a Q&A where he revealed that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson sharing their diagnosis publicly had inspired him to reveal that he had also contracted coronavirus.
Last week, he also shared a song he’d written about the time he and Sabrina had spent in quarantine.READ MORE: The Derry Girls Have Filmed A Lockdown Video And It Could Not Be More Derry Girls George Alagiah Shares Heartfelt Message With Fellow Cancer Patients After Coronavirus Diagnosis Paul Chuckle Recovering After Being 'Laid Up' With Coronavirus: 'It's Not Nice'
