Big Time Hollywood Actor Announces He Has Coronavirus via Social Media

It was likely only a matter of time until one of the nation’s beloved celebrities caught the COVID-19 strain of coronavirus.

Today, on the same day that the NBA announced that they will be suspending their season indefinitely, acclaimed and beloved Hollywood actor Tom Hanks made a shocking announcement on social media.

Actor Tom Hanks says he and his wife, actress Rita Wilson, have been diagnosed with coronavirus.

In a statement posted to Instagram, Hanks said he and his wife were traveling in Australia when they were tested after exhibiting symptoms like tiredness, body aches, chills and “slight fevers.”

“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?” he wrote.

The actor’s admission was accompanied by a photo of a white, disposable glove in a trashcan.

The glove photo seems to be a part of Hanks’ longstanding theme of photographing this particular article of clothing in the wild – something that conspiracy theorists have pontificated on for years now.
