Idris Elba Has Tested Positive for Coronavirus

Looks like Taylor Swift and Ariana Grande were right to caution their fans about the coronavirus pandemic: Everyone who is able to stay home amid the spread of COVID-19 should do so. Not even your favorite celebrities are immune. Since Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson confirmed their diagnoses in Australia, the question became a matter of when other famous faces would come down with the virus next, not if. Even Heidi Klum, who says she could not get a hold of a test, revealed she'd been experiencing symptoms.

Here's every celebrity who's said they tested positive for coronavirus:

Idris Elba

"This morning I tested positive for Covid 19," he captioned a video on Twitter on Monday, March 16. "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."

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson

Hanks first shared the news on Instagram that he and his wife tested positive for coronavirus last week. "We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too," Hanks wrote in his initial post. "To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive."

The couple—who sign each post with "Hanx"—have been keeping us updated every step of the way.

As of Monday, March 16, Hanks and Wilson left the hospital and are now staying in a rented home in Australia for five days, according to People.

Olga Kurylenko

The Quantum of Solace actor revealed she has tested positive in an Instagram post on Sunday, March 16. "Locked up at home after having tested positive for Coronavirus. I've actually been ill for almost a week now. Fever and fatigue are my main symptoms. Take care of yourself and do take this seriously," she wrote in the caption.

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau

Canadian prime minister Justin Trudeau's office reported last week that the P.M.'s wife, Sophie, has tested positive for COVID-19. "She is feeling well, is taking all the recommended precautions and her symptoms remain mild," Trudeau's office said in a statement. Justin Trudeau is currently taking doctors' advice by undergoing 14 days of isolation.

Rudy Gobert

NBA player Rudy Gobert of the Utah Jazz tweeted last week that he had tested positive for COVID-19. In his original post, he apologized for touching every microphone and recorder in front of him at a media event earlier this month as a joke.

He has since shared his progress on the official NBA Twitter account, saying he is feeling "a little better every day."

Donovan Mitchell

Gobert's Utah Jazz teammate Donovan Mitchell has also tested positive. In an interview with Good Morning America on Monday, Mitchell said he is "asymptomatic."

"I could walk down the street. If it wasn't public knowledge that I was sick, you wouldn't know it," he added. "I think that's the scariest part about the virus—you may seem fine, be fine, and you never know who you may be talking to, who they're going home to."

Callum Hudson-Odoi

The Chelsea soccer team player tested positive for COVID-19 last week. "As you may be aware I had the virus for the last couple of days, which I have recovered from," he said in a video posted on Twitter on Friday, March 13.

"Thank you for all your good wishes," he wrote in the Tweet. "As I said in the video I’m feeling good and hope to see you all soon!!"
