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’.
