Last week, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson announced that they were tested positive for coronavirus. A rep for the Hanks allegedly shared that the couple is doing pretty well now. 


A week after the Hollywood couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson were diagnosed with COVID-19, a representative of Hanks has revealed that the couple is doing well now. 

According to "PEOPLE," a source close to the couple reported that Hanks and Wilson are well on their way to recovery after being released from a hospital in Queensland, Australia.

The couple remains under quarantine at their Australian home. They were amongst the first celebrity couples to reveal that they had been infected with the coronavirus. 

They are feeling better each day.


On March 12, Hanks took to Instagram to share that he and his wife were in Australia when they started to feel a little sick. The actor revealed that he and Wilson had tested positive for corona.

"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?"



Hanks had been in the country for the pre-production of an untitled biopic of Elvis Presley by Baz Luhrmann. The filming of the movie has been stopped for now.

Although corona can be fatal to many individuals, Hanks and Wilson didn't experience any critical symptoms. However, they urged their fans to stay safe during this time of turmoil. 


Coronavirus has disrupted the lives of millions of people around the world. From the regular citizens to royalty, thousands of people have been infected with the contagious virus. 

Actors Idris Elba of "The Wire and Hobbs & Shaw" and Kristofer Hivju of "Game of Thrones" have also tested positive for COVID-19 and are currently staying in isolation. 


All the major events including St. Patrick's Day parade, the remainder of NBA season, the iHeartRadio Music Awards and many more have been canceled in the wake of the chaotic situation.
