Elba told those on social media that both he and Dhowre “still feel ok so far with no changes.” The couple previously stated that they had no symptoms of the virus when they were tested. It’s been reported that some carriers of the virus are asymptomatic.
However, the actor did share that while he hasn’t really shown any symptoms, he did have body aches and a headache the day he got tested.
Dhowre also responded to those who felt she was too excited to have contracted the virus from her husband, explaining to a friend on Instagram Live, “I already saw him before he got tested, so I was going to get it anyways. It’s nothing to be excited about. I hope you’re staying at home. I hope you’re taking care of your family.”
Elba added that doctors told the couple they would be immune to the virus “for a certain time since out antibodies fought this.” The pair hope to return to London as soon as they can.
