Hollywood great Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson are the latest to be diagnosed with the virus which has now reached pandemic status across the globe.

The actors were in Australia filming for an upcoming Elvis Presley movie when they received the diagnosis.

After news of his diagnoses broke, Tom Hanks sent a statement to Deadline addressing the story.



He wrote: “Hello, folks.  Rita and I are down here in Australia.   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 requires.  Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?
