Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks, who recently acquired Greek citizenship, and his Greek American wife Rita Wilson, have both tested positive to coronavirus in a Gold Coast hospital.

Hanks and Wilson are currently in Australia for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film from Warner Bros.

The couple are the first celebrities to go public with a diagnosis.

This is a developing news story.

Read the statement Tom Hanks posted on Instagram:

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 requires. 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 yourselves!

Warner Bros. released this statement:

We have been made aware that a company member from our Elvis feature film, which is currently in pre-production in The Gold Coast, Australia, has tested positive for COVID-19 (coronavirus).

We are working closely with the appropriate Australian health agencies to identify and contact anyone who may have come in direct contact with the individual.  The health and safety of our company members is always our top priority, and we are taking precautions to protect everyone who works on our productions around the world.

The individual who tested positive for COVID-19 is currently receiving treatment.
