Idris Elba Fires Back At Cardi B & Others Claiming Celebrities Are Paid To Say They Have The Corona Virus

Actor Idris Elba has shutdown down claims that he was paid to say he has the coronavirus.
The actor recently revealed that he and his wife Sabrina Dhowre tested positive for COVID-19. While the couple received widespread support after going public with their diagnosis, they also faced some scrutiny.

Now the former “Wire” star is firing back at his critics, some of whom thought he received preferential treatment because of his celebrity status. “I think that the negativity around test shaming is like counterproductive. I don’t see what people get out of that,” he said.

Cardi B went on Instagram Live to share a conspiracy theory that celebrities are being paid to say they have the virus.

“I’m starting to feel like y’all nias is paying nias to say that they got it,” said the “Bodak Yellow” rapper. “And if y’all are paying ni**as to say that they got it, pay me too.”

Elba scoffed at the idea that he would be paid, saying the conspiracy theory can have dangerous impacts. “And also this idea that someone like myself is gonna be paid to say I’ve got coronavirus. That’s like absolute bullshit, such stupidness,” he said. “And people wanna spread that as if it’s like news. That’s stupid. It’s the quickest way to get people sick. There’s no benefit to me and Sabrina sitting there saying we’ve got it and we ain’t got it. I don’t even understand the logic of that.”

While speaking with Oprah for an episode of “Oprah Talks: COVID-19” on Apple TV, he also warned of the dangers of spreading misinformation. “I’d rather go out with a positive, knowing that other people benefited from, you know, the messaging that we’re trying to put out,” said Elba. “You know, stop trolling people, stop sending misinformation. Stop, you know, writing these incredible stories about, you know, conspiracy theories.”

Face Mask: Whip up a spa-worthy mask right in your own home using strawberries and yogurt to help smooth bumps and unclog pores.

Oatmeal Mask: Combine cookedoatmeal with lemon juice and egg. The oatmeal’s antioxidants will bring down swelling, while the acid in the lemon kills bacteria in your pores and the vitamin E in the egg will tighten skin so it appears perfectly smooth.

On the new season of “Westworld”: “It’s a natural evolution from where we were,” she says animatedly. “It just gets richer and richer because the writers have known what they’re going to do for five seasons. I don’t know what happens from episode to episode. This season was such a gift for everybody. I’m so admiring of everyone involved. We have such earnest respect for each other. We’ve grown as people.”

On her role as Maeve in “Westworld”: “It’s the best role. The perspective she has [as a robot] and what that, as an audience, allows us to consider… What makes her strong are the things she’s copied or learnt from a human being. She’s cherry-picked the things she wants to keep. It’s really great this season. We have such good directors. We have eight episodes and five are directed by women. I’ve worked with so many women over the past 12 months.”

On fashion: “I love dressing up. I love a beautiful gown because it’s a piece of art. I love color.”
On being optimistic: “We’re seeing beautiful things happen in the world that are completely counter to the shi**y things. People are so tender. All the negative sides of being terrified… on the flip side, look at our creativity, our courage. We have to keep looking at those things. Because a lot of the time, it’s where we choose to look.”

Covid-19: 5 affordable foods that will boost your immune system

As news of Covid-19 aka Coronavirus continues to swirl around us, measures against contracting it cannot be overemphasized, neither can education and sensitization slow down.
More than ever before, we have to look out for each other and more importantly, look after our individual selves.

With that in mind, and considering the fact that you stand a better chance in the fight against the pandemic if you have a strong immune system, here is a list of foods that can boost you in that regard.

Although prior observance of good hygiene and healthy practices makes things even better for you, still, do not hesitate to add these foods to your diet now -whether or not you have been conscious of your hygiene before now. It is better late than never.

1. Citrus fruits
Obviously the first on the list. Citrus fruits contain Vitamin C and it’s no news that this helps build up your immune system. Vitamin C is also thought to increase the production of white blood cells. Popular citrus fruits include: grapefruit, oranges, tangerines, lemons, limes, etc.
Because your body doesn't produce or store it, you need daily vitamin C for continued health. Almost all citrus fruits are high in vitamin C. With such a variety to choose from, it's easy to add a squeeze of this vitamin to any meal.

2. Red bell peppers
In other words, ‘Tatashe’
According to Healthline, red bell peppers actually contain twice as much vitamin C as citrus. Also, not only will these red things do wonders for your immune system, they’re also advantageous for the maintenance of a healthy skin.

3. Broccoli
The key to keeping its power intact is to cook it as little as possible — or better yet, not at all.
You don’t want to disturb its vitamins A, C, and E components, which are actually the things you’d be consuming the vegetable for. There are also anti-oxidants and a rich supply of fiber in there that overcooking can mess with.

4. Garlic
Garlic’s immune-boosting properties seem to come from a heavy concentration of sulfur-containing compounds, such as allicin.
According to America’s National Center for Complementary and Integrative Health, garlic may also help lower blood pressure and slow down hardening of the arteries.

5. Green tea
Per Healthline:
"Where green tea really excels is in its levels of epigallocatechin gallate, or EGCG, another powerful antioxidant. EGCG has been shown to enhance immune function.
"Green tea is also a good source of the amino acid L-theanine. L-theanine may aid in the production of germ-fighting compounds in your T-cells."

Some more...
Pawpaws, spinach, ginger, and greek yoghurt are just as great at making your immune system better.
