LOS ANGELES: Hollywood legend Tom Hanks along with wife Rita Wilson have at last been released from the Hospital in Australia where they were kept under incubation and to undergo treatment as they got tested positive for the highly-contagious Coronavirus.

The news about them testing positive and being isolated came just last week.

The couple was in Australia for pre-production purposes regarding a film based on the evergreen singer Elvis Presley. Hanks was playing Presley's manager, Col. Tom Parker. Baz Luhrmann was directing the project. The production is on hold, so are all the other films which were being shot during this period as the outbreak has been declared a Pandemic by WHO (World Health Organisation).

The 'Forrest Gump' star took to Instagram to update the world about his condition. He uploaded a photo and the caption read, "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 requirements. 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!" he continued.
