The star of Disney’s second installment of the acclaimed “Frozen” series Rachel Matthews said on Monday she screened for the coronavirus positive.
The 26-year-old actress— who spoke of Honeymaren as’ Frozen 2′ — revealed that she was under quarantine for the past week because of the disease in a series of posts on her Instagram account.
“Hi guys, I tried COVID-19 positively, and last week I was in quarantine,” wrote Matthews.
“What the next move is because you’ll get mixed details that keep you posted but will be quarantined before you’ll tell them to do otherwise.”
Matthews, who also starred in the “Looking For Alaska” series in Hulu, described how symptoms have evolved over several days, and the tests have been “insanely difficult to get through.”
“We’re really behind our country, and we don’t have much structure in place,” she wrote. “I was tested only because I was in a confirmed case and showed signs.”
Elba, 47, said he had no symptoms to date, and decided to check himself after coming into touch with someone who has also screened coronavirus positively, COVID-19.
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. pic.twitter.com/Lg7HVMZglZ

Worldwide, 173,293 cases of coronavirus and 6,649 deaths have been confirmed.
At the end of December, in Wuhan, China, the first cases of mysterious respiratory disease–now known as the COVID-2019, a type of coronavirus–began. Since then, the virus has spread around the world, prompting the World Health Organisation, the first since the 2016 Zika outbreak, to announce a public health emergency.
Many famous people with this illness include Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, Idris Elba, Kristofer Hivju, and Richard Wilkins, the host of the weekend today.
