The scare about Covid-19 (coronavirus) is certainly as real as it gets and while the list of public figures being diagnosed with it has actually been extending alarmingly with days passing by; one of the first ones to be tested positive with it and informing everyone was actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson.
Hanks has constantly been vocal and inspiring even with his updates about being tested positive with the disease to how is he being treated, there is a huge development in the same. Hanks and Wilson have left the hospital after being diagnosed with the coronavirus and are now self-quarantined at their rented home in Australia, Deadline can confirm. We had been hearing that Hanks and Wilson were on the mend, and Hanks’ sons Colin and Chet let the world know that was the case on social media.
Hanks is in the Gold Coast of Australia to shoot Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley movie for Warner Bros in which the actor plays the legendary singer’s manager Colonel Tom Parker. Filming on the movie, which is scheduled to open on Oct. 1, 2021, has been on hiatus though hope persists that production will ramp up soon given Hanks’ recovery.
Luhrmann and his family went into voluntary self-quarantine after being in contact with Hanks. We hope the duo and everyone else is treated all the more sooner.
