Today, it was announced Netflix would be pausing the production of their fantasy series The Witcher for two-weeks as a precautionary measure in the wake of the COVID-19 outbreak in the United Kingdom. 

An actor from the series has revealed they have the virus. 

Back in February, it was revealed that Game of Thrones actor Kristofer Hivju joined the cast and he has now announced on Instagram that he has tested positive for coronavirus, joining other actors such as Idris Elba, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, and Quantum of Solace’s Olga Kurylenko. 

Here is the statement made by Kristofer on social media. 

HIVJU: “Greetings from Norway! Sorry to say that I, today, have tested positive for COVID19, Coronavirus. My family and I are self-isolating at home for as long as it takes. We are in good health – I only have mild symptoms of a cold. There are people at higher risk for who this virus might be a devastating diagnosis, so I urge all of you to be extremely careful; wash your hands, keep 1,5 meters distance from others, go in quarantine; just do everything you can to stop the virus from spreading. Together we can fight this virus and avert a crisis at our hospitals. Please take care of each other, keep your distance, and stay healthy! Please visit your country’s Center for Disease Control’s website, and follow the regulations for staying safe and protecting not just yourselves, but our entire community, and especially those at risk like the elderly and people with pre-existing conditions.”

Hopefully, everyone stays safe and production eventually resumes soon. 

An epic tale of fate and family. Geralt of Rivia, a solitary monster hunter, struggles to find his place in a world where people often prove more wicked than beasts.
