Actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, have been released from a hospital in Queensland, Australia five days after testing positive for the coronavirus.
Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx
A representative for the couple told CNN on Monday, March 16, that the couple remains under quarantine at a rented house in Australia, where they were both diagnosed with the virus last week.
Tom and Rita, both 63 years old, are in Australia to begin filming a movie about Elvis Presley. The former is set to play Elvis' manager, Colonel Tom Parker, in the film directed by Baz Luhrmann and produced by Warner Bros.
Tom and Rita were the first Hollywood celebrities to announce they had contracted the coronavirus. In the United States alone, the virus, which causes a disease, COVID-19, has infected more than 3,800 and killed more than 70 people.
