The Oscar winner, Lupita Nyong’o, is the latest celebrity to test positive for COVID-19, a diagnosis that forced the star to cancel virtual interviews for her new movie, ‘The 355’.
“I have also tested positive for Covid-19. I am fully vaccinated and take care of myself in isolation, so I trust that I will be fine. Please, do everything you can to protect yourself and others from serious illness“The actress wrote on her official Twitter account.
Before testing positive, Nyong’o intended to join her co-stars Jessica Chastain, Penelope Cruz, Diane Kruger, Fan Bingbing, Sebasitan Stan, and director Simon Kinberg for a round of virtual interviews to promote the spy thriller, which arrives to US theaters this Friday.
In the action movie, Nyong’o plays Khadijah, a former MI6 ally and avant-garde computer specialist. The adventure brings together a quartet of the best female agents (Chastain, Kruger, Nyong’o and Cruz) as they try to recover a top-secret weapon that has fallen into the hands of mercenaries.
Just this week, several stars announced their positive diagnoses for COVID-19. The host Seth Meyers tweeted on Tuesday that he had been infected, while on Monday comedian Whoopi Goldberg announced that he contracted the virus, amid the increase in cases in much of the world.
