Renowned actors Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson stunned fans across the globe when they disclosed on Instagram that they had been detected with the Coronavirus during a trip to Australia. Hanks had been shooting a movie there, and after the positive detection took to Instagram to let fans know what was up, which comprises of a picture of a medical glove on top of a trash can. This may have seemed like an odd picture to post with the news, but it’s actually pretty ordinary for those who follow Hanks on Instagram, as the actor consistently uploads pictures of stray gloves and socks he finds out and about in the world.

Hello, folks. @ritawilson and I are down here in Australia. 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. Well, now. What to do next? 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! Hanx!

“They’re not trippin’ but they’re going through the mandatory health precautions obviously,” he adds. “But I don’t think it’s anything to be too tensed about.
