On Wednesday we told you about Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson testing positive with coronavirus. They are in Australia where he was working on a movie.
Yesterday we had an update from his son Chet. Chet thanked everyone for their concern but said they really were not too worried.
Today we have another update about Tom and Rita!
Hello folks. Rita Wilson 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,Tom Hanks
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?Tom Hanks
Rita also posted an update to her twitter, she has definitely kept her sense of humor through all of this!
There are currently more than 120 confirmed cases of coronavirus in Australia according to the World Health Organization.
The diagnosis of Tom and Rita forced Australia’s Nine Network to set up a crisis response plan.
Rita had visited the channel’s morning talk show for an appearance last Monday. All staff on the show will be quarantined after coming into “prolonged contact” with Rita Wilson.
Rita also performed at the Sydney Opera House on Saturday! There were only about 200 people there, but still, the risk is real. They did disinfect the building and said they are contacting people who may have been exposed.
