Tom Hanks ‘feels better’ 2 weeks after first coronavirus symptoms

Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson “feel better” two weeks after first noticing symptoms of coronavirus, and he has encouraged others to self isolate.

The couple revealed earlier this month that they tested positive for the virus – which has killed more than 15,000 worldwide – but they appear to be coming out of the other side, and he has urged people to shelter during the pandemic.

“Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – You don’t get it from anyone.”

He wrote on Twitter: “Hey, folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better. Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – You don’t get it from anyone

“Common sense, no? Going to take a while, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts…this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out. Hanx. (sic)”

Last week, representative Leslee Dart issued an update on their health, telling fans the pair are “doing very well” and are on the mend.

She said: “Tom and Rita are doing very well and continue to recover. Their recovery is very much on course for healthy adults with this virus. They are feeling better each day.”
