As the Coronavirus pandemic continues to spread throughout the world, Idris Elba is the latest celebrity to unfortunately announce he has tested positive for the disease.

The star shared the news with fans via Twitter, and wanted to let them know he's doing A-OK so far. "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," he wrote.

Along with the announcement, the actor shared a video in which he went on to explain that he chose to get tested after finding out he had spent time with another person who had contracted the virus. At this time, Elba doesn't have any symptoms at all, but according to the CDC, it could take as long as 14 days for them to appear.

Fans jumped into the replies of his post to send Elba well wishes. "Hope it clears up soon!," one fan wrote. "He'll be fine, that's the only energy I'm putting into the universe," another tweeted.

We're sending our love and wishes of good health to Elba and his family during these trying times, as well as anyone who is currently battling Coronavirus.
