After 'Forrest Gump' star Tom Hanks & 'James Bond' actress Olga Kurylenko, two more International celebrities have tested positive for Coronavirus.

Actors Idris Elba & Kristofer Hivju are latest celebrities who have been diagnosed with Coronavirus. 'Mandela: Long Walk to Freedom' star Elba took to his social media account on Monday (local time) and revealed that he has tested positive for Coronavirus.

"This morning I tested positive for COVID-19. I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I am doing. No panic," Elba tweeted alongside a video in which he is seen with his wife Sabrina Dhowre.

In the video, Elba, 47, also shared that he got tested after he found out last Friday that he had been exposed to someone who tested positive.

"This is serious. Now is the time to think about social distancing and washing your hands," he said.
