Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson have both tested positive for the COVID-19 virus.
Actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson are Hollywood’s first official cases of the Coronavirus. The couple is in an Australia hospital on quarantine after testing positive.
Coronavirus hysteria is at an all-time high as the world struggles to deal with the pandemic. The US now has to take the virus more seriously after it has made it to affecting celebrities.
On the same night that the NBA canceled the entire remaining season indefinitely after a player tested positive. Hollywood is in panic mode now because oscar winner Tom Hanks along with his actress wife Rita Wilson has confirmed cases of Coronavirus.
Hanks and Wilson were in Australia shooting a film about Elvis Pressley.
Tom Hanks took to social media to share the news with fans.
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! Hanx!
The couple’s son, Chet Hanks, gave a further update shortly following the announcement stating: “They both are fine, they’re not even that sick.”
Hopefully for Chet is right. The Coronavirus, while a severe concern, isn’t as fatal as some people fear it is. Most cases see the patient recover after a short period. However, for certain groups of people, especially the elderly and sickly, the virus is a major concern. With events all over the world being canceled and entire sports leagues postponing their seasons, the world is feeling the effects of the virus. In a dream world, this will all be over soon, and things will go back to normal, but only time will tell.
What do you guys think of Tom Hanks and His Wife Rita catching COVID-19? Is it a sign of things to come? Or just a random case?
