Dilip Kumar, 97, took to Twitter to reveal that he's in quarantine and in complete isolation. While the veteran actor hasn't contracted the novel coronavirus, he revealed that wife Saira Banu isn't taking chances, and has therefore decided to quarantine him as a precautionary measure. "I am under complete isolation and quarantine due to the #CoronavirusOutbreak. Saira has left nothing to chance, ensuring I do not catch any infection," Dilip Kumar tweeted.


He also urged his fans to stay home as far as possible and follow the guidelines issued by health departments to ensure their safety. "I appeal to all of you to protect yourself and others by staying indoors as much as possible. The #CoronavirusOutbreak transcends all boundaries and borders. Follow guidelines issued by health departments, protect yourself and others by limiting your exposure to others," Dilip Kumar added in a second tweet.

Earlier today, Hollywood actor Idris Elba revealed that he's tested positive for Covid-19. In a video update, he shared that he is feeling fine, however, he will remain in isolation until full recovery.

"This morning I tested positive for Covid 19. I feel ok, I have no symptoms so far but have been isolated since I found out about my possible exposure to the virus. Stay home people and be pragmatic. I will keep you updated on how I'm doing ???????? No panic," he tweeted along with a video message.
