Idris Elba Wants World to Quarantine One Week Every Year

Idris wants the world to remember COVID-19 every year.

Idris Elba reckons the coronavirus pandemic should be remembered in the future by voluntarily quarantining a week every year once the world resumes back to normality.

Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina Dhowre tested positive for COVID-19 back in March and have recovered since.

The actor told Associated Press:

I think that the world should take a week of quarantine every year just to remember this time.

'The Wire' star continued:

Remember each other. I really do. I think it's… other species use it. It's called hibernation. But it does remind you that the world doesn't tick on your time.

Dhowre shared the pair was "lucky" to battle mild symptoms, though her husband did admit the entire experience was "scary and unsettling," and it had "turned (our) lives around."

Back in March, the 'Dark Tower' actor revealed he contracted the virus before his wife confirmed she got the virus too a few days later.

Recently, the couple is embarking on a campaign with the United Nations, in an effort to minimize the impact of coronavirus on farmers and food producers in rural areas.

The UN Goodwill Ambassadors revealed they have helped launch the $40 million International Fund for Agricultural Development. The initiative aims to provide support to the farmers and food producers in poor regions as a means to ensure the food shortage crisis does not follow in the wake of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Elba said,

It is about food. It is about the basic necessity for human beings, and that will run out if the farmers can't farm.

The couple recently took part in Lady Gaga's 'One World: Together At Home' concert during the weekend.
