Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson Corona virus treatment update

Wednesday, 18 Mar, 2020

Days after announcing Coronavirus diagnosis, Oscar-winner Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson have been discharged from the hospital.

The same was confirmed by their son, Chet Hanks on Instagram who also conveyed the important message of staying calm in the current situation.

The Forrest Gump star announced the shock news last Wednesday that he and his wife were diagnosed with COVID-19 while in the Gold Coast to film Baz Luhrmann's now untitled Elvis Presley film, in which Hanks plays the late singer's eccentric manager, Colonel Tom Parker. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We Hanks' will be tested observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. One commented: "Let us know how you are doing!"

He shared a photo of a stuffed kangaroo and koala and a piece of toast thickly spread with Australian staple Vegemite. And now, according to the latest reports, they have been released from the hospital and are currently quarantined at their home in the country.

United States actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have been released from a hospital in Australia after receiving treatment for coronavirus.

The Coronavirus pandemic has led to several work on film and TV productions being suspended. Tom Hanks, it appears, has not nailed the Aussie way of eating Vegemite on toast. Take care of yourself and do take this seriously, she wrote in the caption.

"Unsure of what the next step is (been getting mixed info so will keep you posted) but obviously will remain in quarantine until told to do otherwise", the 26-year-old wrote Monday.

Mr Hanks revealed the diagnosis last week and thanked "everyone here Down Under" who had taken care of them.

Other celebrities to have tested postitive for COVID-19 include Idris Elba, Kristofer Hivju of "Game of Thrones" fame and former Bond girl Olga Kurylenko.

Hanks, 63, said last Thursday on Instagram he had come down with the virus.
