CANBERRA, Australia (AP) — Tom Hanks said he and wife Rita Wilson were taking their new coronavirus infection “one day at a time” while Australian television hosts who had interviewed Wilson were awaiting test results.
Australia has stepped up its response to COVID-19 by recommending people avoid organized, nonessential gatherings of 500 or more from Monday and to reconsider all international travel.
Hanks and Wilson have been isolated in stable conditions in a Gold Coast hospital following their diagnoses.
The couple used a social media post to thank “everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us.”
