Every day we keep hearing about more and more people who test positive for COVID-19. It’s hard to tell if the statistics are true since not everyone is being tested, and there are people who have no symptoms at all but still have COVID-19. It’s important to keep this thing at bay and to practice self-isolation at this weird time. No one is immune to this, not even celebrities. In fact here are a few of the celebs who tested positive and shared the news with the world in order to tell people about the importance of self-isolation.

Australia. They were feeling a bit tired and had some flu like symptoms so they
were tested and the results came back positive. They’re self isolating for the
time being and doing what the doctors tell them to do. They have since returned
to LA and are still staying put in their house in accordance with government
2. Idris Elba and Sabrina Dhowre
Idris Elba revealed on
March 16th via twitter that he tested positive. He says he doesn’t have any
symptoms so far and is feeling absolutely alright. The reason he got tested was

COVID-19. He’s staying in self-isolation with his wife and keeping his spirits
high. On March 21 his wife Sabrina tested positive for COVID-19 as well.
3. Boris Johnson
Britain’s Prime Minister
