Oscar-winner Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson have become first celebrities to have tested for the disease. The 63-year-old shared this news with fans on Twitter. "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 Coronavirus and were found to be positive. Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed," he tweeted. Hanks mentioned that they felt tired, had body aches and cold. After experiencing the symptoms, they tested for Coronavirus and the results turned out to be positive.
Check out his tweet here:
"We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requirements. 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 yourself! Hanx," he further wrote in his tweet.
Before Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson, it was being reported that Jackie Chan had tested positive for Coronavirus. However, those were mere rumours. Clearing the air, Jackie had written on his Facebook handle, "Recently, my staff told me about the news that's been circulating around the world, saying that I've been placed under quarantine for COVID-19. Firstly, I'd like to take this opportunity to say 'thank you' for everybody's concern! I'm very healthy and safe, and haven't been quarantined. I've received many messages from friends asking if I'm ok. Your love and concern is so heartwarming. Thank you! I've also received some very special gifts from fans all over the world during this very difficult time. Thank you for the face masks."
Meanwhile, we wish a speedy recovery to the couple.
