Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson confirmed on March 11 that they both tested positive for Coronavirus in an Instagram post.

Hanks had been in Australia shooting an untitled Elvis Presley biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann. Hanks plays Presley’s manager, Colonel Tom Parker. The film, slated for release in October 2021, has suspended production, Warner Bros. said.

Tom Hanks and his wife, actress Rita Wilson, tested positive for coronavirus last week, as the actor confirmed to Deadline himself. Fortunately, on Monday, he and Wilson were discharged from the Australian hospital where they’ve spent the past five days recovering and consuming copious amounts of Vegemite. They have reportedly entered self-quarantine in their rental house.

The 63-year-old Oscar winner is in Australia working on Baz Luhrman’s as-yet-untitled Elvis movie. On March 11, Warner Bros. told Deadline that it had become “aware that a company member” came down with the virus. The studio says it is “working closely with Australian health agencies to identify and contact anyone who may have come in direct contact with the individual,” who would appear to be the Beautiful Day in the Neighbor actor. Hanks released the following statement directly to Deadline:

Covid-19: Celebrities who have hit by the Coronavirus

Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia.  We felt a bit tired like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus and were found to be positive.

Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requirements. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?

We’ll keep the world posted and updated.

Take care of yourself!

Per the Warner Bros. statement to Deadline, Hanks and Wilson are currently being treated. They are the first celebrities to report confirmed cases of COVID-19.

The couples’ sons addressed their parents’ illness on social media shortly after it became public knowledge. On the same night the news broke, Chet Hanks posted a video message on Instagram that begins, “Wassup everyone. Yeah, its true my parents got coronavirus. Crazy.” Chet went on to say he’s not too worried but appreciates the outpouring of concern: “They are both fine. They’re not even that sick. They’re not worried about it.”

Covid-19: Celebrities who have hit by the Coronavirus

Sophie Grégoire Trudeau, the wife of Canada’s Prime Minister Justin Trudeau, has tested positive for the novel coronavirus, becoming the latest in a string of high-profile individuals to become infected with the potentially deadly pathogen.

In a statement on Thursday, the office of the prime minister said Grégoire Trudeau had begun experiencing a low-grade fever and other mild flu-like symptoms the previous day and was subsequently tested.

“The test came back positive,” it said.

“She is feeling well, is taking all the recommended precautions and her symptoms remain mild,” the statement said, adding that the prime minister himself “is in good health with no symptoms.”

Grégoire Trudeau will self-isolate for 14 days, along with the prime minister and the couple’s three children, “[as] a precautionary measure,” according to the statement.

It said that the isolation would not interfere with the prime minister’s duties as head of government and that “on the advice of doctors, he will not be tested at this stage since he has no symptoms.”

In her own statement, Grégoire Trudeau, 44, thanked well-wishers, saying that although she is “experiencing uncomfortable symptoms,” she would be “back on my feet soon.”

“Being in quarantine at home is nothing compared to other Canadian families who might be going through this and for those facing more serious health concerns,” she said.

In a gesture of support for Grégoire Trudeau, the leader of Canada’s opposition Conservatives, Andrew Scheer, tweeted that he and his wife “wish her a speedy recovery.”

“We’re thinking of her and her family at this difficult time,” Scheer wrote.

On Thursday, the prime minister spoke by telephone with President Trump and the two leaders discussed efforts to respond to the pandemic, with nearly 135,000 known cases globally and nearly 5,000 deaths from the virus.

In a readout of the call, the prime minister’s office said: “The two leaders discussed the steps they are taking to protect the health and safety of their citizens and to promote economic resilience in response to the COVID-19 virus.”

“The Prime Minister and the President welcomed the close coordination between Canada and the United States in managing this challenge, including as it relates to the Canada-U.S. border, and looked forward to staying in touch,” according to the readout.

Trudeau on Thursday also spoke with British Prime Minister Boris Johnson and Prime Minister Giuseppe Conte of Italy, which has seen a surge in cases in recent days that have severely strained the country’s health care system. In the World Health Organization’s latest situation report on the pandemic, Italy was reporting nearly 12,500 cases with more than 800 deaths across the country from COVID-19.

Grégoire Trudeau joins a growing list of prominent government officials and celebrities who have become infected by the virus, which attacks the lungs and has proved highly contagious even though it causes mild or no symptoms in most people. However, older individuals and those with compromised immune systems are especially vulnerable.

The Brazilian government said Thursday that Fábio Wajngarten, the communications director for President Jair Bolsonaro, had tested positive for the virus.  Weingarten was part of a delegation that traveled to the U.S. last weekend and met Trump and Vice President Pence at the president’s Mar-a-Lago resort in Florida. He was photographed to the right of Trump, along with Pence and Brazilian TV presenter Álvaro Garnero.

A statement from White House press secretary Stephanie Grisham said that the president and vice president “had almost no interactions with the individual who tested positive and do not require being tested at this time.”

In Australia, Home Minister Peter Dutton said in a statement that he “woke up with a temperature and sore throat” Friday morning, was tested and came back with a positive result. He said he had been admitted to the hospital in accordance with directives from health officials.

“I feel fine and will provide an update in due course,” Dutton said. The government in Canberra advised anyone who had come in contact with Dutton in the 24 hours previous to self-isolate.

A day earlier, actors Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, announced that they had tested positive for the virus while in Australia, where Hanks was preparing for shooting to begin on a new Elvis Presley biopic.

I’ve actually been ill for almost a week now. ‘Fever and fatigue are my main symptoms. Take care of yourself and do take this seriously!’

The actress also shared her message in Ukrainian to her 572,000 followers. Fans and friends flooded the post with wishes of good health, with Milla Jovovich commenting: ‘Oh my god, feel better lady! We’re praying for you!’

“Locked up at home after having tested positive for coronavirus,” she captioned her post. “I’ve actually been ill for almost a week now. Fever and fatigue are my main symptoms. Take care of yourself and do take this seriously!” Hanks said he and Wilson had felt tired, with colds, aches and slight fevers.

“To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the coronavirus and were found to be positive,” he said, adding that they’ll be “isolated for as long as public health and safety requires.” On Thursday, Hanks, 63, shared a photo of himself and Wilson, 63, from quarantine in Australia.

“Hello, folks. @ritawilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have COVID-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else,” he captioned the photo. “There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time [sic],” the actor continued. “There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no?

“Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball,” Hanks wrote, referencing a line from his movie A League of Their Own. For most people, the new coronavirus causes only mild or moderate symptoms, such as fever and cough. For some, especially older adults and people with existing health problems, it can cause more severe illness, including pneumonia.

The vast majority of people recover from the virus. According to the World Health Organization, people with mild illness recover in about two weeks, while those with more severe illness may take three to six weeks to recover.

In a message posted to her Instagram story on Monday, the 26-year-old shared the news that she had tested positive for COVID-19 — the disease caused by the coronavirus — and has been quarantined for the last week.

But in addition to her message revealing she’d tested positive for the disease, Matthews also shared a diary of the symptoms she’d experienced over the course of her seven-day quarantine.

The symptoms ranged from a “sore throat, fatigue, and headache” on the first day to develop a fever, minor body aches, and shortness of breath throughout the week.

According to the diary, by the fifth day, Matthews’ symptoms were more manageable, though she was still experiencing “shortness of breath, loss of appetite, fatigue and no taste/smell”.

“Though I’d write down my week in order,” she wrote on the note posted to her Instagram story, before reminding her followers that symptoms do vary.

Singer Charlotte Lawrence let her fans know this week that she has tested positive for coronavirus. She’s not the first star to come forward with a diagnosis (that would be Tom Hanks), but she is one of the youngest.

While older people are at a higher risk of getting very sick from coronavirus, young people are still susceptible to it. They also risk spreading it to people who are immunocompromised.

Here’s what Charlotte said on Instagram about her diagnosis, in full:

“Hey, guys. A couple of days ago, my doctor informed me that I too have COVID-19. A lot of us will. I am going to be completely fine. But many who get it won’t be if too many people get sick too quickly.

Covid-19: Celebrities who have hit by the Coronavirus

So this is not me asking for prayers, for love, for sweet messages. This is me pleading for you all to protect those less able to survive this virus.

Stay inside. Please. Whether you feel sick or not, stay inside. Think about your parents. Think about your grandparents. I love so many people who might have a very tough time getting through this.

Think about someone else getting your loved ones sick because they didn’t listen, because they thought they knew better. Because they were selfish. We have the power to slow this down. So please, please isolate yourself.

Stay clean.  Stay aware and make others aware.”

You heard her, guys. If you’re able, follow her lead and social distance.
