Hollywood actor, Tom Hanks shared a health update for himself and his wife, Rita Wilson following their release from the hospital after they both tested positive for the coronavirus.

The couple tested positive for the virus just a couple of weeks ago after beginning production on the upcoming Elvis Presley biopic in Australia.

He shared the update via his official Twitter page stating that they are ‘both in far better condition, their symptoms slowly dissipating as they continue to stay positive as they fight off what’s left of the virus’.


Regardless of such good news, the duo will continue to distance themselves from the public, ensuring they do not pass the virus onto anyone else as they remain in isolation. He also urges his fans to continue practicing social distancing to prevent themselves or anyone else from contracting the virus.

Hanks also believes that if the world works together to combat this virus and make some tough sacrifices, this crisis can be beaten and overcome.

Hanks and Wilson are not the only Hollywood figures to have tested positive for the virus. Other well-known celebrities such as Idris Elba, Andy Cohen, Olga Kurylenko, Daniel Dae Kim and even convicted Harvey Weinstein have all tested positive.

Hanks will next be seen in Greyhound, a WWII thriller that will finally have its debut this summer following some delays. That is, of course, if the film retains its June release date.
