American actor and filmmaker Tom Hanks has revealed that he and his wife, actress Rita Wilson tested positive to coronavirus after diagnosis was performed on them.
This was contained in a statement that Tom posted on Instagram. He said he and his wife were travelling in Australia when they were tested after exhibiting symptoms like tiredness, body aches, chills and “slight fevers.”
“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 requirements. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?” he wrote.
A representative for Hanks confirmed the news to CNN and had no additional comment.
Warner Bros. confirmed the actor was in Australia doing pre-production work on a film about singer Elvis Presley.
“We are working closely with the appropriate Australian health agencies to identify and contact anyone who may have come in direct contact with the individual,” Warner Bros said in a statement.
“The health and safety of our company members are always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world.”
