Actor Idris Elba has been stuck in quarantine for 14 days after testing positive for coronavirus -- but the actor says he's unable to get a flight home.

"We've passed the quarantine period, but we're a little bit in limbo -- we can't get a flight back home," he said in the update. "So we just have to sit still for a little bit. Other than that, we're OK and we're so thankful that I think the worst of it is probably past."

"We're both good mentally, just trying to stay optimistic. I hope you guys are too, keeping yourselves sane and not getting too worried and too panicked," the Luther actor went on. "Take it from me, man, I thought I definitely was gonna see the worst of it, as an asthmatic, but I got through it. And you can too."

He says that he and his wife remained asymptomatic.
