Tom Hanks gives updates on Coronavirus Symptoms
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are feeling better two weeks after first exhibiting symptoms of the novel coronavirus (COVID-19).
On Sunday, the Academy Award-winning actor shared a statement on a Twitter, updating his fans on their health after testing positive for the virus earlier this month.
“Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better,” Hanks wrote in a joint statement with his wife. The couple then urged their fans and followers to stay home and self isolate, reminding people that it was the most effective way to avoid the virus, as well as help stop the spread.
“Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone — You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no?” he wrote. “Going to take awhile, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts… this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out.”
