Tom Hanks announces he has COVID-19


According to a post from his verified Instagram account, Tom Hanks has tested positive for the coronavirus.

The star of the Toy Story franchise, Cast Away, Forrest Gump, and The Terminal, said he and his wife, Rita Wilson, who are currently in Australia, felt symptoms they believed to be colds—chills and a slight fever.

However, they were tested for COVID-19 and the results came back positive.

According to Hanks’ Instagram, he and 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 said in the post.
