Hollywood star Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were both diagnosed as positive for coronavirus. Now two weeks after coming down with COVID-19, they are recovering.

Tom Hanks tweeted on Sunday:

Tom Hanks was keen to encourage 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 self-isolating in a rented home in Queensland, Australia following hospital treatment.

The couple went to Australia earlier this year, where Rita Wilson was giving a series of concerts and Tom Hanks began filming an Elvis Presley biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann. The role was Elvis’s manager Colonel Tom Parker. Filming has halted.
