Bill Burr has shown he has no worries about Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson's full recovery from coronavirus following Tom's announcement last week.

The site noted that while the tweet didn't cause any social media outrage, it did start a conversation amongst his followers with one person stating that "Australia better be putting everything they have into saving those two."
After Tom's statement, Warner Bros., the studio behind the Elvis Presley film that had taken Tom to Australia, also released an announcement about the news.
It would be recalled that Tom and Rita had been among the first celebrities to test positive for the virus some days ago.
"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 caption came with an image that showed a disposable glove that had been tossed into a bin. Soon after Tom's statement, Warner Bros., the studio behind the Elvis Presley film that had taken Tom to Australia, also released an announcement about the news.
Through the statement, Warner Bros. claimed that all hands were on deck to protect everybody who had come in contact with Tom at that period.
Meanwhile, Pop Culture made it clear that Rita had appeared on the Australian morning talk show "Today Extra" where she had performed a song from her new album.
Rita's presence subsequently led officials to quarantine staff members of the show who had "prolonged contact" with her.
Even though the show's host, David Campbell, mentioned that the singer-songwriter didn't show any symptoms, he in addition to his co-host Belinda Russell, and several others were promptly sent into self-isolation for 14 days.
