Hanks was the first Hollywood celeb to have tested positive for coronavirus while he was shooting in Australia. The actor had informed the same via a tweet which had left his fans worried.

While the couple had been regularly updating his fans about their recovery process, his sister had revealed that the Forrest Gump actor is 'okay' but 'not really great'. While the actor is now back to his LA pad, he and wife Rita are observing social-distancing like the rest of America. Considering the USA has the most number of COVID-19 patients (the number is higher than China and Italy), Hanks will not risk anything and prefer sheltering at his residence. He further thanked all the Australia staff for taking such good care of them and making their return to the US possible. From Tom Hanks To Mikel Arteta, Celebrities And Politicians Not Spared The Coronavirus Bug.
