Idris Elba Claims Doc Told Him He'll Be Immune to Coronavirus

Idris Elba slams theory celebs are cashing in on coronavirus

Elba and his wife Sabrina, including actors Tom Hanks and Olga Kurylenko, are some of the high-profile celebrities who have publicly declared they had contracted the deadly virus.

"The idea that someone like myself is going to be paid to say I have coronavirus". It's no benefit to me and Sabrina saying that we got it and we ain't got it.

"I think the debate about rich and poor and who's getting it and who's not, I think, is not a healthy debate", he said. I'm not an actor right now. "I don't feel like I'm privileged because I got a test because I actually contracted it", he explained. "But then I be seeing these basketball players say like, 'Yeah, I have the coronavirus, but I don't got no symptoms.' So how the f- am I supposed to know when I'm supposed to get tested for it?"

Sabrina, who also feels healthy, said: 'I don't feel anything that would come to what people would now expect to be a symptom of coronavirus, which is really unusual.

Elba later shared in the video that the global pandemic is not a movie and reminded people that although he is an actor, he is still a human being that happens to be a public figure. "I will keep you updated on how I'm doing".
