Tom Hanks And Rita Wilson Have Coronavirus


Hollywood stars Rita Wilson and husband Tom Hanks have tested positive for the Coronavirus. The couple is in Australia currently. Hanks was shooting for a film in which he plays Colonel Tom Parker, Elvis Presley’s manager.

He posted the message on his Instagram:

“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 one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!”

The WHO has declared Coronavirus a pandemic. Just a few weeks ago the American President Trump sought to play down the impact of the virus. “It will go away, just stay calm,” he said. Hanks and Wilson are the most prominent of Americans to test positive and by immediately going public with the news, they have earned admirers for simultaneously raising awareness and being transparent.
