Despite her Marvel Cinematic Universe cohort Idris Elba and Lost co-star Daniel Dae Kim testing positive for the coronavirus, actor Evangeline Lilly has dismissed COVID-19 as merely a ‘respiratory flu’ not worth self-quarantining for.
On Thursday, the actor, who has appeared as The Wasp in MCU films Ant-Man and the Wasp and Avengers: Endgame, took to Instagram and wrote, “Just dropped my kids off at gymnastics camp. They all washed their hands before going in. They are playing and laughing.”
When one person wrote in the comments section that things were not as smooth in New Mexico, Lilly suggested that the situation was being blown out of proportion. “I think we all need to slow down, take a breath, and look at the facts we are being presented with,” she replied. “They do not add up to the all-out, global lockdown, control, pandemonium and insanity we are experiencing.”
