As the Coronavirus spreads to people we know both personally and otherwise, One of Hollywood’s most iconic actors has also now fallen victim.
Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have both tested positive for the Coronavirus.
In a statement posted to Instagram, Hanks said he and his wife were traveling 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 requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?” he wrote.
Warner Bros. confirmed the actor was in Australia doing pre-production work on a film about singer Elvis Presley.
Hanks is set to play Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker, in the film. Actor Austin Butler is playing Presley.
Our thoughts and prayers are with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson.
