Oprah hopes to bring calm with ‘Oprah Talks COVID-19’


As coronavirus continues to spread across the globe, Oprah Winfrey has launched a new Apple TV+ series on the pandemic titled Oprah Talks COVID-19, to help with the global conversation around the novel coronavirus and to try and “lift the human spirit” amidst the rising anxiety and uncertainty about the spreading global pandemic.

In the first episode, Winfrey speaks with actor Idris Elba and wife Sabrina Dhowre, via remote, about how they are coping after Elba tested positive for the virus.

Winfrey posted a preview clip Saturday evening on Twitter. In the video, Elba says: “One of the upsides of this whole drama is that we are forced to think together as a race, as a human race.”

“In this series, Oprah has remote conversations with experts and everyday people to provide insight, meaning and tangible advice for the human spirit,” says Apple TV+.
