'One Day At A Time': Tom Hanks And Rita Wilson Doing Well Despite Coronavirus Diagnosis
Tom Hanks has provided an update on his health following the announcement that he and his wife Rita Wilson have tested positive for coronavirus.
Taking to Twitter on Friday, the Hollywood actor confirmed that he and his wife remain in isolation in Australia.
"Hello folks. Rita Wilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness."
He continued, "We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no?"
Concluding his statement with a reference to the 1992 film, 'A League of Their Own', Hanks wrote, "Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx."
Along with the statement, Hanks uploaded a photo of himself with his arm around Wilson, smiling.
The update comes one day after it was publicly announced the celebrity couple tested positive for COVID-19 while on the Gold Coast filming Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film from Warner Bros.
The couple had been in Australia for several days before self-isolating. During their time Down Under, they visited locations including the Sydney Opera House, the Channel Nine studios in Sydney, and a number of places in the Gold Coast and Brisbane.
Hanks confirmed the news himself on Instagram on Thursday, writing that he and Wilson "felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches."
He assured fans they will be updated throughout the process.
The couple's son, Chet Hanks, addressed his parents' health in a video uploaded to his Instagram account. According to the 29-year-old, "they're not even that sick."
He continued, "They both are fine, they're not even that sick. They're not worried about it. They're not trippin'. But they're going through the necessary health precautions, obviously."
