Idris Elba’s wife Sabrina has explained that despite her husband testing positive for coronavirus she opted not to distance herself.
Speaking during an interview with Oprah Winfrey, Sabrina said,
“I wanted to be with him.
That’s the instinct of a wife. You want to go and take care. I could have made a decision to put myself in a separate room or maybe stay away… But I made the decision to want to be with him and still touch him.’
Elba broke the sad news of his coronavirus infection in a two-minute, eight seconds video. He was with his wife Sabrina.
The 47-year-old revealed that he got infected after contact with a person who tested positive but his wife at the time was yet to get tested.
THIS MORNING, I TESTED POSITIVE FOR COVID-19. 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,’ HE POSTED
Well, now that Sabrina is confirmed to be positive with coronavirus, we guess that is what they mean when you take the vows “for better for worse”.
