Covid-19 and the fear of contracting it have forced many governments around the world to advise citizens to stay indoors and opt for work from home. As we all let the seriousness of the pandemic sink, there are new cases reported every day across the globe.
One of the most shocking news recently was that of Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson having contracted the virus while they were down in Australia for some work regarding Tom’s movie based on Elvis Presley. While reports have suggested that Tom Hanks has been let go from quarantine as he’s made a full recovery, his wife Rita still remains in quarantine.
Now, there has been a new celebrity who has contracted the virus and it’s Idris Elba. The actor tested positive for Corona. The actor who posted about the same on Twitter also revealed that he had no symptoms of the virus and he was isolating himself since he found out that he might have had a possible exposure to the virus. In the video, he asks people not to panic or freak out.
