The actor, who tested positive for COVID-19 last week, took to Instagram Live to debunk the rumor that recently surfaced. At the time, he said he had no symptoms but got tested due to his proximity to the infected person.
Idris Elba doesn't want to be test-shamed after publicly revealing he has the coronavirus. Sabrina then goes on to explain, "I already saw him before he tested positive so I was gonna get it anyways", and emphasized that "it's nothing to be excited about". "That's absolute bulls--", Elba said during the video. "Such stupidness and people wanna spread that as if it's news. It's stupid", he went on to say. I don't see what people get out of that. "There's no benefit to me and Sabrina sitting here saying we got it, and we ain't got it".
"If I had caught it, she had certainly caught it in that time period, as well", Idris Elba told Winfrey.
"There are a lot of people who conjure up these stories", Idris said. "That causes confusion", Cardi said in response to Elba's comments.
"So essentially, I could have been positive from March 4, but it's hard to say when I contracted someone with corona, you can contract it at anytime but my known exposure was March 4".
In Cardi B's recent Instagram Live, she said celebrities who say they've tested positive for the novel coronavirus without symptoms sound like they are in a "Flat Tummy Tea commercial", which is a detox tea that influencers are paid to promote on social media. "I am just trying to keep my mind clear".
It's stupid."Idris Elba and wife Sabrina have both tested positive for the coronavirus". "If y'all are paying n***as to say that they got it, pay me too".
While speaking about the coronavirus, the outspoken "Money" rapper demanded more action from the government.
Idris Elba's fears about spreading the virus while asymptomatic are, indeed, a major part of the reason most of the world has engaged in quarantine protocols, as COVID-19 can be in a patient's system for weeks before actually manifesting symptoms.
