Wilson's fans flocked to her Instagram post shortly after Hanks explained on his own Instagram account that he and his wife had been diagnosed with the virus.
"Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia," Hanks explained (the couple were in the country for pre-production for Baz Luhrmann's untitled Elvis Presley film, per Deadline). "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," he continued. "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!" the famous actor concluded his post. "Hanx!"0comments
Hanks's post has garnered plenty of reactions from fans, as well.
"Thank you for sharing maybe this will encourage others to take the pandemic seriously," one fan commented on his post about the ongoing crisis, which was recently deemed a global pandemic by the World Health Organization. "Be well and speedy recovery."
