American actor and filmmaker, Tom Hanks, and his wife, Rita Wilson, have tested positive for the COVID-19 coronavirus.
This was confirmed by the actor on his Instagram Wednesday, sharing a photo of a rubber glove inside a hazardous waste disposal bin.
“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,” the 63-year-old actor wrote.
“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?”
“We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves!” the actor known for his comedic and dramatic roles added.
There are now 121,545 confirmed cases of coronavirus and 4,373 deaths all over the world.
