Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson released from hospital following coronavirus diagnosis
After testing positive for coronavirus last week, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have left the Queensland hospital they were being treated at.
PEOPLE reported that according to the Hollywood star’s rep, the couple are now taking it easy at their home where they remain in quarantine.
The couple, who tied the knot in 1988, have been in Australia for pre-production of Baz Luhrmann’s upcoming Elvis Presley biopic in which Hanks plays Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker.
Last Thursday, Hanks took to Instagram to reveal that he and Wilson had contracted COVID-19.
"Hello, folks. Rita 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," he shared on Instagram and Twitter. "Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed.View this post on Instagram
Hello folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no? Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball. Hanx
"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!"
Officials from Queensland released a statement last week revealing where the couple likely contracted coronavirus.
While they did not name Hanks and Wilson specifically, they did say that all of the state’s new patients are non-contact cases. Which means they have “contracted the illness outside Australia and travelled to Queensland with the virus”, so were most probably infected in the United States or while travelling to Australia.
