March 17, 2020: British actor Idris Elba has tested positive for coronavirus, tweeting in a video on Monday that he had no symptoms yet but was quarantining.

"This morning I tested positive for Covid 19. I feel ok; I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus." Elba said.

"Now's the time to really think about social distancing, washing your hands," he continued. "There are people out there who aren't showing symptoms and that can easily spread it."
