The actor and actress tested positive for coronavirus in Australia, Hanks said on his Twitter account.
Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks and his wife, actress Rita Wilson, have tested positive for coronavirus in Australia, the actor said on Twitter.
Hanks had earlier posted on Instagram: “Hello folks, Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches.”
“To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the coronavirus, and were found to be positive,” the “Saving Private Ryan” star said.
“We Hanks will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires,” he added.
“We’ll keep the world posted and updated,” he added, along with a photo of a surgical glove placed inside a biohazard trash bag.
In a video message the Hanks’ son, Chet, said, “I just got off the phone with them, they both are fine, they’re not even that sick.”
“They’re not worried about it, they’re not tripping but they’re going through the necessary health precautions obviously,” he said.
“I don’t think it’s anything to be too worried about but I appreciate everyone’s concerns and well wishes, but I think it’s going to be alright.”
