Days After Idris Elba revealed he was tested positive for coronavirus, it appears his wife has contacted the virus as well as Sabrina shared her diagnosis with Oprah Winfrey Saturday during a Facetime call on Winfrey’s “Oprah Talks COVID-19,” Apple TV+ series.
Idris’ wife said she had just found out yesterday morning that she had tested positive. However, she says she wasn’t too surprised though because she was already in route to be with her husband when he was awaiting his test results and rushed to be by his side when he found out about his positive result.
“I wanted to be with him,” she said. “That’s the instinct of a wife. You want to go and take care.”
The couple is currently in New Mexico where they are under quarantine. We wish them a full & speedy recovery. Check out their discussion with Oprah (below).

Which is why I FaceTimed Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina who are safely quarantined together after he tested positive for COVID-19. Idris fills me in on his journey and Sabrina reveals the result of her test after they decided to quarantine together.

The couple was criticized online for not practicing social distancing, but told Oprah that Sabrina Elba was likely already exposed before his test results.
