Celebrated Hollywood actor Idris Elba has made a call for some of the changes that should be made across the world once the coronavirus pandemic is over.
According to reports by Metro, the actor, who is famous for his roles in Hollywood action-packed movies, has recently recovered after he tested positive for the virus along with his wife, Sabrine Elba.
The report noted that now that the celebrity couple has moved past the worst part of the virus, Elba described the ordeal as "definitely scary and unsettling and nervous".
In addition to this, Elba submitted that a week should be dedicated to quarantine in a bid to recognise the global pandemic that claimed many lives.
Metro reports that Idris in a chat with Associated Press 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," Elba added.
