It's saddening to know that one of the ace Hollywood Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks and his wife, actress Rita Wilson are tested positive for coronavirus in Australia. it was the actor who broke the news to people with a tweet. The couple were tested in Australia, where Tom is working on a film, after they started feeling tired and achy with a little fever.
Tom tweeted, “Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.
Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?
We’ll keep the world posted and updated.
Take care of yourselves!”
– Tom Hanks
Hanks was in Australia to film a movie about the life of Elvis Presley where he plays the rocker's manager, Colonel Tom Parker. it wasn't immediately clear if the filming is going to be postponed or no.
More than 121,000 people are infected with COVID -19 in 118 countries out of which 4,300 people have lost their lives due to the virus.
We wish Hanks and his wife a quick recovery.
