Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks has revealed that he and wife Rita Wilson have tested positive for coronavirus while filming in Australia’s Gold Coast.
Hanks wrote on Instagram: “We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that come 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.”
“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?”
Tom Hanks has won 2 Oscars, 8 Emmy Awards and 4 Golden Globes as an actor, director, producer, screenwriter, and filmmaker.
On Wednesday, the World Health Organization (WHO) officially declared the outbreak to be a pandemic.
