Idris Elba feels like he “dodged a bullet” after recovering from Covid-19. Both the 47-year-old actor and his wife Sabrina Dhowre, 31, contracted the virus in April and Idris says they are thankful to be alive.
In an interview with BAFTA, he said: “I do feel like I dodged a bullet – I’m very thankful to be alive.”
Meanwhile, Idris previously admitted the “mental impact” of Covid-19 was “pretty traumatic” on him and Sabrina, saying-“I was asymptomatic so I didn’t get the major symptoms everyone else got. Mentally, it hit me very bad, because a lot was unknown about it.
“I felt very compelled to speak about it, just because it was such an unknown. So the mental impact of that on both myself and my wife was pretty traumatic.”
