Tom Hanks says he and his wife Rita Wilson are recovering after their positive diagnosis for coronavirus.
The star also encouraged social-distancing, saying “sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – you don’t get it from anyone”.
The couple are now in self-quarantine in a rented home in Queensland, Australia following hospital treatment.
They travelled to Australia earlier this year, where Wilson gave a series of concerts and Hanks started filming an Elvis Presley biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann.
The actor is playing the role of Elvis’s manager Colonel Tom Parker in the film, which halted production following his diagnosis.
