Hello, folks. @ritawilson 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!
It was on Friday morning that Hanks and his wife had announced that they felt mild fever and chills and decided to go for tests where they found out that they were infected with the deadly coronavirus which has killed over 4000 across the world. In India, 107 cases of the coronavirus have been detected with two reported deaths so far.
Later, in another post that he made on social media, Hanks revealed that both he and Rita are positive about their recovery and have been kept under isolation for 14 days in Australia. They were the first celebrities to have gone public with their diagnosis.
