Idris Elba says he is fine but stuck in limbo
The Thor actor says he and his wife are still asymptomatic but are unable to go back home to London because of the lockdown
Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina Dhowre tested positive for COVID-19 a couple of weeks ago and were in isolation in the US. The actor took to Twitter to update his followers about their health and said they are still asymptomatic.
He said, "We've passed the quarantine period, but we're a little bit in limbo. We can't get a flight back home. So we just have to sit still for a little bit. We are both good mentally, just trying to stay optimistic. I hope you guys are too, keeping yourselves sane and not getting too worried and too panicked."
The actor revealed that he was worried that he would see the worst of the infection as he is asthmatic. "But I got through it. And you can too," he added.

He also said, "Other than that, we're okay and we're so thankful that I think the worst of it is probably past."
Elba, who was last seen in Cats, has two much-awaited releases in the pipeline including Concrete Cowboys and The Suicide Squad.
