Tom Hanks & Wife Contract Coronavirus
Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson have tested positive for coronavirus. The two were working on preproduction in Australia for Baz Luhrmann’s film about Elvis Presley when the discovery was made.
Warner Bros. issued a statement that says someone in the production was diagnosed with coronavirus, which led to Hanks and Wilson’s test.
Deadline received a statement directly from Hanks:
“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?
We’ll keep the world posted and updated.
