Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson tested positive for coronavirus, the actor himself said on his personal Instagram account on Wednesday. Tom Hanks is currently on the Gold Coast of Australia, where he was to film for Warner Bros. In the still-untitled film about Elvis Presley, Austin Butler was to play the role of Elvis and Hanks to his manager, Colonel Tom Parker. It is not known how many people Hanks came into contact with while preparing the footage.
“Greetings, good people, Rita and I are in Australia. We felt a little tired, as if we were chilled, and had some pain all over our body. Rita had some chills that came and went. Mild fever also. To do the right thing, as it is needed in the world right now, we did the coronavirus test, and we tested positive. ” The actor added: “So what’s next? Healthcare officials have protocols to follow. We, the Hanks family, will be tested, observed, isolated as long as public health and safety require it.
Hanks, 63, began coronavirus treatment. On March 5, the actor’s wife made her Sydney Opera debut with her new album, Halfway to Home. It is not known if the woman had already contracted the virus by that time. Previously, Rita Wilson had visited the Nine Network studios in Australia to interview “Today Extra with David Campbell and Belinda Russell” and is now taking action in that studio. On the other hand, Warner Bros. told The Hollywood Reporter that pre-production for the Elvis movie was discontinued as a “company member” tested positive for coronavirus, currently receiving treatment.
COVID-19 has so far killed over 4600 people worldwide and affected over 100,000 people. The World Health Organization said Wednesday that we are experiencing a coronavirus pandemic.
