Tom Hnaks and his wife became the first celebrities to announce their diagnosis early in March during their Australia tour where Hanks had been filming for a new Elvis Presley biopic.

Narrating the entire journey of him and his wife beating the virus, Hanks had earlier told on the National Defense Radio Show: “Rita went through a tougher time than I did. She had a much higher fever. She had lost her sense of taste and sense of smell.”

“I was very tired. I felt extremely achy. Uncomfortable, didn’t want to be touched and then the fever started. Chills like I’ve never had before. Looking back, I realise I was also losing my sense of taste and smell which I didn’t realize at the time,” he added.
