Hollywood's all-time sweetheart, Tom Hanks shared his health update two weeks after he and wife Rita Wilson tested positive for the novel COVID-19 in Australia. After one week in the hospital, the two were placed in self-quarantine in week 2. "Hey folks, two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better," he posted in a social media message to fans.
The Oscar-winning actor was in Australia to film an Elvis Presley biopic where he was set to play the iconic singer's manager Colonel Tom Parker. Later, it merged that both Tom and his wife had contracted the deadly coronavirus. The pair were admitted to the hospital, where they were treated before being released into self-isolation last week. The movie, which was in its pre-production stage in The Gold Coast, has been put on hold.
In his week 2 update, the actor urged fans to stay at home and apply 'common sense'.
Hanks has been sharing regular updates through social media. He had earlier provided a similar update a week after being diagnosed with coronavirus. Hey folks. Good news: One week after testing positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same. No fever but the blahs. Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch. Bad news: my wife has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and now leads by 201 points,” he’d written.
