No fever but blahs: Tom Hanks shares health update amid coronavirus scare

The actor, along with wife, singer-songwriter Rita Wilson, was diagnosed with coronavirus on March 11 while they were in Australia for work.

Hollywood star Tom Hanks on Wednesday (March 18) said he and his wife, actor Rita Wilson dont have fever but feel the “blahs” since their discharge from an Australian hospital after testing positive for the coronavirus.

The actors, both 63, checked out of a Gold Coast medical facility on Tuesday after spending a week in self-isolation.

Hanks took to Instagram to give an update, his first, after their release from the hospital. “Hey folks. Good News: One week after testing Positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same. No fever but the blahs,” he said.

The “Captain Phillips” star wrote how he and Wilson were spending their time under self-quarantine. “Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch.
“Bad news: My wife @ritawilson has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and leads by 201 points. But I have learned not to spread my Vegemite so thick,” he said.

Sharing a picture of a corona typewriter, he quipped, “I travelled here with a typewriter, one I used to love.” “We are all in this together. Flatten the curve. Hanx,” he added.
Wilson, also a singer-songwriter, shared a video of her singing her song “Broken Man” while recovering from COVID-19.

“Broken Man by Rita Wilson. Written with Gary Burr. People arent perfect. Gotta love them flaws and all,” she captioned the four minute-long video.

Last week, Hanks revealed he and Wilson tested positive for COVID-19 in Australia, where the multiple Oscar winner was working on Baz Lurhmanns Elvis Presley biopic.

Wilson had given concerts in Sydney and Brisbane before testing positive. Warner Bros shut down preproduction on the Elvis film after Hanks diagnosis. Earlier this week, Lurhmann went into self-isolation, along with his family, after coming into contact with Hanks on the film sets.
