The 47-year-old actor, had in March revealed that he had contracted coronavirus. His wife, Sabrina Dhowre, also tested positive for the disease a few days later. Since then, the actor has been regularly giving updates about his and Sabrina's health through social media.

In the later video, posted on his official Twitter account, Elba said their self-quarantine period is over but they are yet to be tested again for COVID-19. "We're both doing okay, still asymptomatic. We've passed the quarantine period but we're a little bit stuck in limbo — we can't get a flight back home. So we just have to sit still for a little bit."
