Actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita have been tested positive for coronavirus. Hanks and his wife, both 63, sought medical advice after experiencing symptoms of a cold in Queensland.

Oscar-winning actor is in Australia where he was set to film a movie about the life of Elvis Presley.

“We felt a bit tired like we had colds, and some body aches,” Hanks said in a statement. “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.”

He added that he and Ms. Wilson “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?” he further added in his statement, which he also posted on Instagram accompanied by a photograph of a lone medical glove in a hazardous waste container. “We’ll keep the world posted and updated.”

Hanks is the first major Hollywood star to publicly announce that he has the virus that is sweeping the world.
