Idris Elba has said he and his wife Sabrina Dhowre-Elba are unable to get home despite passing the quarantine period following their coronavirus diagnosis.
The 47 year old actor posted a video on his Twitter updating his fans on his and his wife’s condition, two weeks after revealing he had tested positive for covid-19, with Sabrina also later testing positive for the virus.
Speaking in the clip, the Luther star said: “What’s up people, just wanted to send you a little update on how we’re doing, we’re both doing OK.

“We’re both asymptomatic and out of quarantine but we’re a little bit stuck in limbo, we can’t get a flight back home, so we have to just sit still for a little bit but other than that we are ok and we’re so thankful for that.”
The hunk continued: “I think the worst of it has probably passed.
“It’s weird because I never sit still and Sabrina never sits still either and I think she’s finding it a bit harder – a bit of cabin fever.”
Idris, who wed Sabrina last year, then told his fans he and his wife are trying to “stay optimistic” throughout the uncertain times and he hopes everyone else is “keeping themselves sane”.
Speaking about his asthma condition and how he feared the deadly virus would take a nastier turn on him he said: “I thought I was going to see the worst of it, as an asthmatic, but thankfully I came through and you can too.”
He added: “Just a big shout out to everyone that’s helping other people – especially the doctors and nurses and that. You lot are amazing and it should be fully appreciated.
“And, to everyone that’s going through some hard times financially right now, you know, bear up, this is gonna be a tough time for everyone but, keep your head up.”
He concluded with: “Just a note to say, listen, I’m still here, hope you’re good, we’re gonna fight this thing and everything’s gonna be cool. Thank you for everyone that’s been sending us the love and the thoughts, we really appreciate it.”
Idris hasn’t confirmed his whereabouts, but it’s been reported he and Sabrina are in New Mexico, according to Oprah Magazine.

He added: “At some point we’d like to go home to London. Bsafe.” [sic]
