Sophie Trudeau & Idris Elba Took A Photo Together Days Before Testing COVID-19 Positive

As the days go on, the list of celebrities with a COVID-19 diagnosis only continues to grow. In the last week, both Idris Elba and Sophie Trudeau tested positive for the virus and as it turns out, they took a photo together just days before their illness was confirmed.
According to PEOPLE, the group photo was snapped at SSE Arena in Wembley, London during the WE Day charity event that was held on Wednesday, March 4.
Trudeau posted the photo to her Instagram account just a day later. “My heart is full after spending time working with my own family and the WE family. Our message in London: Show yourself love and offer that same love to the world,” the Prime Minister’s wife wrote in the caption.

Elba shared the news about his positive coronavirus diagnosis with his fans on Monday, March 16 via a video uploaded to his Twitter account.
“I didn’t have any symptoms,” the Cats actor explained. “I got tested because I had realized I got exposed to someone who had also tested positive. I found out last Friday that they were tested positive, I quarantined myself and got a test immediately and got results back today.”
It remains unclear whether the person Elba is referring to is Trudeau or not, but the actor confirmed that he’s “doing okay” at home with his wife, Sabrina Dhowre, who PEOPLE reports has not yet been tested.
“Now’s the time to really think about social distancing, washing your hands. Beyond that, there are people out there who aren’t showing symptoms, and that can easily spread it. So now’s a real time to be really vigilant about washing your hands and keeping your distance,” the 57-year-old urged his followers.
“If you’re feeling ill, and you feel like you should be tested, or you’ve been exposed, then do something about it. It’s really important.”
As of 10:30 a.m. ET on Tuesday morning, Canada’s official website reports that there are 424 confirmed cases of COVID-19 and four deaths across the country, with five of the cases fully recovered.
