She added: "Overwhelmed by all the loving messages, thank you," followed by a red heart emoji, before re-sharing a post from Global Citizen on how to help the situation.

The account advises people to "call on G20 leaders to urgently fund" the response to Coronavirus, urge corporations and the public to donate to the World Health Organisation Solidarity Fund, and practice social distancing while frequently washing hands.

Over this, she wrote: "If you can, donate with us".

Idris, 47, announced he had tested positive for the virus on Monday 16 March evening and revealed he's in self-isolation with his wife.


In a video, he announced: “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."

Idris added that he was tested for the illness after coming into contact with someone who later confirmed that had also tested positive.

“Look, this is serious,” he continued.
