After recovering from Coronavirus, Idris Elba and wife are stuck in limbo

Idris Elba is “stuck in limbo” after coming through coronavirus.

The former ‘Wire’ star and his wife, Sabrina Dhowre Elba, both tested positive for the virus as reported earlier this month but have had few symptoms and now their quarantine period is over, they were keen to return to London from New Mexico but have been unable to get a flight.

He said in a video message posted to his social media channels on Tuesday (31.03.20): “We’re both doing okay, still asymptomatic. We’ve passed the quarantine period but we’re a little bit stuck in limbo — we can’t get a flight back home. So we just have to sit still for a little bit.

The 47-year-old actor stressed he and his wife were “both good mentally” and admitted he’s relieved the respiratory disease didn’t make him feel as ill as he’d expected. Idris ended his message with a “big shoutout” to those working on the frontline and offered support to others finding themselves in difficulty during the current climate.

He said: “Just a big shoutout to everyone that’s helping other people, especially the doctors and nurses and health care people that are doing their thing, you lot are amazing and should be fully appreciated.

The United Kingdom is currently under lockdown which could be adding to Elba’s difficulty of getting home. According to The Telegraph, Boris Johnson has placed the UK on a police-enforced lockdown with drastic new measures in the fight against the coronavirus outbreak.

The Prime Minister ordered people only to leave their homes under a list of “very limited purposes”, banned public gatherings of more than two people and ordered the closure of non-essential shops. The transport sector has also been affected, with travel being scaled back completely.

A report on BBC indicates as of Monday (30.03.2020), the total number of people who have died with coronavirus in the UK rose by 381 to 1,789 – the biggest daily increase so far. An average of about 7,500 new people were tested per day in the seven days up to Tuesday, compared to a daily average of about 5,700 in the previous seven days.
