He explained that he has to wait until the virus subsides until he can leave isolation.

When asked what he was doing to stay safe, Scarface said: ‘Gotta stay away from everybody… People out there think this sh*t is a game, you need to relay and convey the message to everybody that this is not fake.’

Scarface is the latest star to reveal they have tested positive for coronavirus, as Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have the virus, as well as Idris Elba and his wife Sabrina.
