Idris Elba’s Wife Sabrina Tests Positive For Coronavirus: I Wanted To Be With Him
Idris Elba’s wife, Sabrina, has also tested positive for the coronavirus. Last week, the 47-year-old actor announced on social media that he had tested positive and had taken the test after being in contact with a person that also tested positive. That person is said to be Sophie Trudeau. He told his followers:
“I’m on location, about to start film and the news breaks that this person, who is also in the public eye, had tested positive. My job made me test immediately. I had to test because it meant putting a lot of people at risk who I was working with on a new film.”

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. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I’m doing ???? No panic. pic.twitter.com/Lg7HVMZglZ

On Saturday (March 21st), Sabrina (30) told Oprah Winfrey that she now has coronavirus.
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. 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.
Idris Elba explained,
“On the day of the exposure, we were together at home and had been together right until I had departed to fly. So at any point then, and prior to us knowing, if I’d caught it, she’d certainly have caught it in that time period as well.”
The pair are being quarantined in New Mexico.
