Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson test positive for Coronavirus in Australia

Superstar Tom Hanks and actress wife Rita Wilson have confirmed they’ve tested positive for Coronavirus.

Hanks is in Australia where he’s been shooting Baz Luhrmann’s Elvis Presley biopic, playing the role of Col. Tom Parker.

“We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches,” the 63 year-old actor said in a statement. “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.”

Production on the film, which stars Austin Butler as the King, was due to begin production on Monday.

Australia has had more than 120 cases confirmed cases of coronavirus.

Hanks arrived on the Gold Coast on January 26 and was rumoured to be staying at the same hotel – Peppers Broadbeach — where a Chinese national who was one of Australia’s first coronavirus cases was staying.

The film, based at Oxenford Studio on the northern Gold Coast, *won’t be headed for its shoot until things improve. In a letter to crew and actors this morning, Baz Luhrmann said a crew member had tested positive for the virus and asked everyone to stay home.

“All work activity on the production is cancelled and will not resume until further notice. We appreciate everyone’s co-operation and we will be following up with more details over the next several hours.”

I didn't hear about it but I wouldn't be surprised.

Apparently you either get better in 7-14 days or you die within a couple of days, with little to no middle ground. So they'd be within the recovery window by now for sure. I hadn't heard about them dying, so I assume they're on the mend.
