The only thing I've heard since I started the thread & from the back pages of the news is that actor Idris Elba said he 'believed' he got the infection from her. believes he got coronavirus on the day he hugged Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s infected wife.
“I know I’ve been exposed to it from March 4,” the 47-year-old “Luther” star said — the same date he was photographed with Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, 44, at a packed charity event in London, alongside F1 star Lewis Hamilton.
“That’s when the person that came up positive, that was the time I got in contact with that person,” he said in a video update, again stressing that his “known exposure was March 4.”
Without naming the person, he revealed that he got tested after hearing about someone “also in the public eye” being infected.
He said he found out about it Friday — the morning he would have woken up to hear that Canada’s first lady had tested positive.
“On Friday last week I was told that someone that I had been in contact with had tested positive,” he said.
Race driver Lewis Hamilton was also in that group 'hug'..
actor Idris Elba said he 'believed' he got the infection from her... believes he got coronavirus on the day he hugged Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s infected wife.
Don, I've read and re-read your quote from the Twitter(?) feed. I'm not sure I come to the same conclusion as you do. He doesn't actually state that he caught the virus from her... just that he hugged her at this "packed" charity event.... and yes, she later came down with COVID-19. He no doubt was in close proximity to a lot of people during that time frame. I don't know the exact sequence of events, but who's to say that it wasn't Idris Elba himself who was spreading the infection?
Check Facebook for local groups. We have one here for covid related stuff, and it is mind-blowing the number of people being called out for returning from travel and heading straight to work in high exposure jobs. One tonight was a pharmacist.
