Model/actress Sabrina was joined by Idris Elba two of them remain in complete isolation together.
Dhowre Elba was not surprised as she was already en route to be with her husband.
She said, “I wanted to be with him,” “That’s the instinct of a wife. You want to go and take care.”
Dhowre Elba also said she felt fine, “I don’t feel anything that would come to what people would now expect to be a symptom of coronavirus, which is strange.”
“It might change in the coming weeks, and we’ll keep everyone updated,”.
She added, “But it is worrisome that we’re sitting here, two people, and … we’re asymptomatic.”
Earlier, Idris Elba has posted a live video on Twitter last week in which he had said, “It was weird because people were criticizing her for being next to me (in the video where he announced he had coronavirus) and that was bananas,” he said. “I think that took a little bit of a mental strain on both of us. We didn’t expect that.”
