Tom Hanks Says Rita Wilson Had Worse Covid-19 Symptoms, But He Was 'Wiped'
Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson had quite an experience with COVID-19. After being diagnosed in Australia, the two were forced to self-quarantine while they recovered. Eventually, the two were able to recover and returned to their home in Los Angeles. Now, Hanks is opening up more about the couple’s battle with the virus and, as you can expect, it wasn’t easy, especially for Rita Wilson:
Tom Hanks told The National Defense radio show that he tried to pass the time by doing the exercises he typically engages in. However, he found it a lot more difficult to do them in his weakened condition:
The actor also pointed out that he and his wife were some of the first people to be diagnosed with the virus in Australia. As such, they were self-quarantined mostly due to the country’s desire to limit the spread of the disease early on:
Although Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson remained upbeat about their situation through playful social media updates, it sounds like they had a tougher time than we thought. It’s particularly sad to hear that Rita Wilson had such an ordeal with the coronavirus.
The famous pair have been candid about their time in self-quarantine. Rita Wilson posted a heartfelt message about her battle with both COVID-19 and breast cancer and thanked everyone for their support. Tom Hanks also recalled his experiences (to humorous and sentimental effect) through his recent Saturday Night Live monologue.
This pandemic appears to be far from finished, as people are the world are still feeling the brunt of it. Hopefully, by sharing their experiences, Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson and others can help to encourage and inform those who are still battling illness.
