Idris said: 'It's hard to say when I got the disease or when I contracted COVID-19, it's hard to say when. I will say that I know I've been exposed to it from March 4.

'That's when the person that came up positive, that was the time I got in contact with that person.

'So essentially, I could have been positive from March 4, but it's hard to say when I contracted someone with corona, you can contract it at anytime but my known exposure was March 4.'

Marvel star Idris Elba slams coronavirus "conspiracy theories"

  Marvel star Idris Elba slams coronavirus "That is the quickest way to get more black people killed."Earlier this week, the Thor and Avengers actor announced that he was in self-isolation after testing positive for coronavirus. Now, he says some of the reactions to his diagnosis are "scaring" him.

He described the tests as “worthless” and said publicly funded Covid - 19 testing was a “massive redistribution of tax money in the direction of the pharmaceutical industry.” He went on to accuse the government of “dictatorship light,” claiming “Austrians have been deprived of their basic rights, such

We were lucky to get a test very quickly because of the shortages of the test.

'It was the best thing to do, I was going to be around a lot of people starting this film.'

Idris went on to reveal that wife Sabrina, who has stayed by his side since he was diagnosed, has been tested for coronavirus and is 'nervous' about the results.

The actor also insisted that the model 'wanted to be by my side' and support him throughout the disease diagnosis.

He said: 'Sabrina's good too. Sabrina today finally managed to get a test, and we're thankful for that. Generally, Sabrina's fine. Nervous of course. Worried.

'Just for clarification, Sabrina wanted to be by my side. We calculated that risk and decided to be together. Hope you guys can understand that.'

  LNP Senator still has 'no idea' how she contracted COVID-19 LNP Senator Susan McDonald says she still has “no idea” how she contracted COVID-19.  Senator McDonald was tested for the coronavirus last week after experiencing symptoms, just hours after Peter Dutton announced he had tested positive for the disease. The Townsville-based Senator joked about her diagnosis, telling Sky News she was a “terrific disappointment” to specialists due to her lack of symptoms.

He added: 'I love her even more for it and I would do the same thing for her. Love is all you get, and who am I to turn down my wife’s support? As much as I want her to be safe, we calculated that risk and decided to be together.

'I love Sabrina for standing by me and being in that video, it was the most important moment for me.'

Idris added that his wife woke up this morning 'a little bit sad' over the backlash, he said: 'She’s doing okay. We’re very lucky we managed to get her a test this morning. She woke up this morning a little bit sad as I did.

'Yesterday was a lot for us. My wife isn’t used to the public eye as I am and yesterday we were the biggest story in the world. It was weird because people were criticising her for being beside me and that was bananas.'

At the We Day UK charity event, Idris had been at the event to discuss social issues with 12,000 schoolchildren and teachers, while Sophie has been working alongside the charity.

Taking to Instagram to share a picture of the two of them together, she gushed: 'My heart is full after spending time working with my own family and the WE family. Our message in London: Show yourself love and offer that same love to the world.'

Sophie announced she tested positive for the virus last week and had gone into self quarantine, while Idris revealed on Monday that he had coronavirus.

'Some of the people I grew up with, people I saw around the neighbourhood, went down the wrong path, ended up doing the wrong thing.

'I was different. I was lucky, maybe. I wanted different things. I was an only child by immigrant parents from Sierra Leone, West Africa.

'And they worked hard for what they had. This way of life taught me the importance of independence and relying on myself for my own success.'

Idris continued: 'You are all capable of making an impact so speak out about what matters – whether that is fighting against knife crime, global hunger, housing, education, sexism, combating racism.

'We all need to be conscious about the world we live in because it is our responsibility to make things better together.'
