Sabrine Dhowre, the wife of Idris Elba, has revealed that she has tested positive for coronavirus.

"Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive. I'm not surprised. As soon as I heard that Idris was potentially exposed I was on my way anyway and I wanted to be with him. I think that's an instinct as a wife you just want to go and take care. We didn't change the way we interacted," she told Oprah Winfrey who was speaking to the couple about Elba's diagnosis.

She continued, "I could have made a decision to put myself in a separate room or maybe stay away. I'm sure people are making those decisions, they're tough decisions to make. But I made the decision to want to be with him and still touch him."

Elba revealed that his wife was with him the day that he likely contracted the virus, so they basically assumed that she would likely have it too.
