AceShowbiz – One more famous person has been tested positive for coronavirus, and this time it’s Sabrina Dhowre. The wife of Idris Elba revealed her diagnosis during a chat with Oprah Winfrey for her new Apple TV+ series “Oprah Talks“.
Sabrina revealed that she learned of her diagnosis hours prior to the interview. “Actually, I found out this morning, Oprah, that I tested positive,” she said, adding that she didn’t regret sticking by his side despite the criticism. “I wanted to be with him. That’s the instinct of a wife. You want to go and take care.”
She went on saying how strange it feels for her to be suffering from the virus when she is feeling healthy. “I don’t feel anything that would come to what people would now expect to be a symptom of coronavirus, which is really strange,” Sabrina admitted. “It might change in the coming weeks, and we’ll keep everyone updated. But it is worrisome that we’re sitting here, two people, and … we’re asymptomatic.”
During the interview, Idris also gave an update on his condition, revealing that he hasn’t “witnessed any major symptoms” and is “feeling okay.” He said, “It’s interesting and worrying that people are possibly carrying this disease and are seemingly okay, but can spread it easily.”
Sabrina and Idris are now under quarantine in New Mexico ever since he was diagnosed with the disease. Of how they spent time with each other amid the isolation, they said that they have been playing video games, chess and cooking meals. Sabrina also revealed that the “Cats” actor has been learning how to play guitar and serenading her.
She gushed over her actor husband, “You know what? He’s not bad. I don’t mind him playing it. It’s kind of romantic.”
