Probably the most shocking case among all of the famous coronavirus cases, was when Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, both tested positive for Coronavirus. The couple was shooting a movie in Australia, when both of them started to develop flu-like symptoms and went to the doctor, experiencing overwhelming fatigue. It turned out that the two did, in fact, have the virus, and have since kept the public updated about their current state. They are being treated in Australia.

The reaction from the public has been especially massive. Tom Hanks is one of the most beloved actors in Hollywood, with fans from across the world. Hanks has been in a number of iconic movies, like Forrest Gump, The Ladykillers, You’ve Got Mail and much more. His ability to portray completely different characters is what distinguishes him from so many good actors in Hollywood. For example in Both Forrest Gump and You’ve Got Mail, Hanks plays different but still very likable characters. Meanwhile in The Ladykilled Tom Hanks portrays a Goldthwaite Higginson Dorr, Ph.D., that is planning to rob a casino with his friends. The group of criminals is sure that the casino, like many other respected real money casinos, has a lot of money in its vault. Goldthwaite Higginson Dorr and his associates plan to dig a tunnel through the exposed wall in the cellar in order to break into the underground vault for a nearby riverboat casino.

In the happy turn of events, Tom Hanks and his wife have already been dismissed from the hospital and are now just practicing social isolation like the rest of the world.
The Coronavirus has greatly affected the sports industry and not just by all the cancellations that we’ve been seeing, with some of the most important basketball and football games being postponed indefinitely. Donavon Mitchell, from the NBA, also tested positive for the illness. Mitchell played for the Utah Jazz.
