It has been two weeks now since Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were diagnosed with coronavirus. The couple was in Australia and were admitted in a hospital there. Last week, Tom and Rita were discharged and were kept under quarantine until they are completely fine.
Today, the Oscar-winning actor took to his Twitter page to share his and Rita’s health update. In his Twitter post, Tom wrote, “Hey, folks> Two weeks after out first symptoms and we feel better. Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone — you don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no?”
He also wrote, “Going to take a while but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts… this too shall pass. We can figure this out. Hanx.”

Last week, the Forrest Gump actor had shared health update by joking about his favourite typewriter. Tom Hanks wrote, “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 th couch. Bad news: My wife has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and leads by 201 points. But I have learned not to spread my Vegemite so thick. I travelled here with a typewriter, one I used to love. We are all in this together. Flatten the curve. Hanx”.
We hope for the speedy recovery of Tom and Rita and others who have tested positive for coronavirus.
