Idris Elba slams coronavirus conspiracies

Idris Elba

Dhowre and Elba both slammed the notion they are being paid to say they have the coronavirus.

Elba is one of many stars, including Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and Olga Kurylenko, who have tested positive for coronavirus.

Despite the fact that he has received worldwide support from loyal fans over the past couple of weeks, the actor has still been hit with questions and claims regarding the lack of symptoms he experienced before testing positive for the virus.

Idris Elba discussed his recent coronavirus diagnosis with Oprah this week on a new talk show series, Oprah Talks COVID-19, now streaming on Apple TV+. "'I don't see what everybody's getting so upset about!' That's what Stedman was saying. and that's why Stedman's at the guest house!"

Opening up about how he was tested, Idris admitted that everyone who has symptoms should take the test, regardless of if they are rich or poor. "Everyone should be able to get a test, for sure". That's absolute bulls-t. Such stupidness.

Elba noted that he was around many people, including his extended family and his colleagues, between the time of exposure on March 4th and the time he got tested.

Jay Inslee's office said in an email he is aware of the issue, takes it seriously and is talking with the department about it. While announcing, the Ministry of Justice said: "We have suspended all prison visits in England and Wales for today".

The actor continued: "People wanna spread that as if it's news". "I'd rather go out with a positive, knowing that other people benefited from, you know, the messaging that we're trying to put out", said Elba.

The 47-year-old star, who has tested positive for the disease alongside his wife Sabrina, railed against the idea in an Instagram video last night, as reported by the Sun.

It is not clear why celebrities would be paid to say they had coronavirus, but the theory has been advanced by the likes of rapper Cardi B. "I don't even understand the logic in that".

"Stedman did not arrive from Chicago until Thursday. he'd been on planes, so Stedman is like, 'What's the procedure for coming home?' The procedure is. you ain't coming and sleeping in my bed!" she said.

Elba said that people are engaging in "test-shaming", which he called "counterproductive".
