In the video, Idris explained that he tested for the virus even though he’s not exhibiting any symptoms. He said in part; “This morning I got some test results back for coronavirus and it came back positive. Yeah and it sucks. Listen, I’m doing okay. Sabrina hasn’t been tested and she’s doing okay. I didn’t have any symptoms. I got tested because I realized I was exposed to someone who had also tested positive. I found out last Friday they were tested positive. I quarantined myself and got tested immediately. I got my results back today.”
He also added that his wife, Sabrina, hadn’t been tested saying in part; “Sabrina hasn’t been tested and she’s doing OK.”
