Actor Tom Hanks and his actress wife Rita Wilson have returned to the United States after recovering from the China-originated novel coronavirus, or COVID-19.
“Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are coming home,” a report from E! News said Friday.
“A source close to Hanks and Wilson, who were both diagnosed with coronavirus two weeks ago, confirmed to E! News that they’ve returned to Los Angeles after recovering from the virus in Australia.”
A photographer captured a snapshot of the duo smiling in their car, apparently driving through Los Angeles, the outlet noted.
Hanks and Wilson were some of the first visible celebrities to test positive for the virus, giving COVID-19 a Hollywood face.
On March 11, Hanks shared a statement on social media announcing the positive tests and offering the public insight into their conditions.
“Hello folks,” the “Forest Gump” actor started the post. “Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had cold hands, 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 tests for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.”
“Well, now. What to do next?” he continued. “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?” full story
