Oscar-winner Lupita Nyong’o on Tuesday revealed that she’d tested positive for Covid-19.

The Kenyan actress tweeted her diagnosis, revealing that she was fully vaccinated and isolating.

“I too have tested positive for Covid-19. I’m fully vaccinated and taking care in isolation, so I trust I will be well. Please do all you can to keep yourself and others protected from serious illness.” The actor added the hashtag “#StayMaskedAndVaxxed” at the end of her message.

Nyong’o is the latest celebrity to share her positive test results amid the recent surge of Covid-19 cases amid the discovery of the omicron variant.

The actress who has two films coming out this year 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 promoting her latest film ‘The 355’.

The espionage thriller, lands in theaters on Friday.

She plays Khadijah, a former MI6 ally and cutting-edge computer specialist, in the fast-paced, globe-trotting movie which brings together a formidable foursome of top agents (Chastain, Kruger, Nyong’o and Cruz) as they try to retrieve a top-secret weapon that’s fallen into mercenary hands, all while staying one step ahead of the mysterious Lin Mi Sheng (Fan), who is tracking their every move.

Nyong’o won a Daytime Emmy back in July for her performance in the Netflix children’s program, Bookmarks: Celebrating Black Voices.

She’ll next be seen in Marvel’s sequel Black Panther: Wakanda Forever, among other projects.
