12 March 2020, Sydney

US popular actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, have been tested positive with coronavirus while filming in Australia, international media reports have said.

The Academy Award-winning actor Hanks is currently on the Gold Coast in Queensland filming Baz Luhrmann’s production about Elvis Presley, reports said.

63-year-old Hanks took to Instagram to share that he and his wife had been feeling “a bit tired, like we had colds” they arranged to be tested for the virus and had been “found to be positive”.

“We felt a bit tired, like we had colds and some body aches,” he wrote on his Instagram page.

“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. 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?”
