Idris Elba Thinks We Should Quarantine For A Week Every Year

Idris Elba thinks the world should go into quarantine every year for a week to serve as a reminder that 'the world doesn't tick on your time'.

The Luther actor, who recently recovered from coronavirus, believes the pandemic we are currently living through should be remembered annually once we have overcome it.

Speaking to the Associated Press, the 47-year-old said: "You know, everyone's sort of feeling the way we have been feeling, but it has definitely been sort of just a complete upheaval.

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

The couple were interviewed by Oprah Winfrey via FaceTime and Idris said: "One of the upsides of this whole drama is that we are forced to think together as a race.

"Our world has been taking a kicking. We have damaged our world and it's no surprise that our world is reacting to the human race."

He continued: "It is no surprise that a virus has been created that is going to slow us down, and ultimately make us think differently about our world and ourselves."

Winfrey also agreed, saying she believes the virus is 'here to teach us, show us something about ourselves, as individuals and also as a world of people'.
