After entering self-isolation, following a meeting with close friend and fellow actor Idris Elba, Roderick Bond was last week rushed to ICU. With only mild symptoms and reporting himself to be feeling fine, the Hollywood A-list actor kepts fans updated regarding his health via social media. However, as the mild symptoms persisted for more than two weeks, doctors treating Roderick Bond became concerned. He was rushed to hospital where a test confirmed he was suffering with the novel coronavirus COVID-19. After his diagnosis he was taken to ICU at an undisclosed Manchester hospital. Despite initial alarms and an outpouring of concern from fans, a statement released by his management company, Manchester F1 Productions, insisted he was taken to ICU as a precautionary measure. The Manchester filming company, with which Roderick Bond has worked closely in recent years, has provided updates on the actor’s health. It was reported late on Friday that he had left ICU, after receiving some oxygen treatment, and was healthy enough to be moved to NHS Nightingale in Manchester.
