American actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have tested positive for coronavirus.
The couple is in hospital on the Gold Coast.
On Instagram, Hanks wrote, “We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. 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.”
Hanks was in the Queensland city to work on an Elvis biopic with director Baz Luhrmann.
“Well, now. What to do next?” Hanks wrote.
“The medical officials have protocols that must be followed.
“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?
“We’ll keep the world posted and updated.
“Take care of yourselves!,” his social media post said.
More to come.
