In addition to this, Elba submitted that a week should be dedicated to quarantine in a bid to recognize 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.

The time in quarantine was rather difficult as Elba doesn’t sit still and they both had a bit of cabin fever. Elba expressed gratitude for not falling seriously with the virus and urged all people to stay positive and healthy. With him being asthmatic, Elba said he thought it was going to be a lot worse. He also gave thanks to all those helping others through these difficult times.
