Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson test positive for the virus; NBA postpones season: Trace Gallagher reports.

How has Tom Hanks’ diagnosis raised awareness about the seriousness of the current pandemic?

In a shocking turn of events, it has been announced that the extremely talented American film star Tom Hanks has been diagnosed with the novel coronavirus disease, also known as COVID-19. On Wednesday, 11 March, the Academy Award-winning actor declared that he and his wife, Rita Wilson, had tested positive for the virus while they were in Australia.

In a statement released on social media, Hanks, who is known for his incredible acting ability and his roles in numerous movies such as “Forrest Gump”, “The Terminal” and “Saving Private Ryan”, confirmed that he and his wife started to feel unwell, had some flu-like symptoms, and decided to undergo tests for the virus which soon returned positive. They are now self-quarantined and are receiving treatment from expert medical professionals.

The news instantly caused shock and panic around the world, owing to the fact that Hanks is a much-loved, iconic figure both in the United States and globally. Though it was initially thought that only older people and those with underlying health problems were at risk of contracting the virus, the news of Hanks testing positive has shown that absolutely anyone can become infected, regardless of age or health status.

The outbreak of the virus has undoubtedly been of great concern to health authorities worldwide. The World Health Organization has declared it a global pandemic, with numbers of confirmed cases increasing at an alarming rate all around the world. As famous personalities like Tom Hanks get infected, it is beginning to sink in that the outbreak is no longer something that just affects distant people, but could affect ourselves, our families and our communities – this realization is forcing people to take more notice and precautions.

It is worth noting that Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson had visited Australia for the pre-production of an upcoming film about the life and career of musician, Elvis Presley. This may have exposed numerous other people who came in contact with them to the virus, which is why officials in Australia are working tirelessly to track down everyone the couple met and visited.

In summary, the news that Tom Hanks has contracted the coronavirus has sent shockwaves across the globe, raising awareness about the seriousness of the current pandemic. People are now becoming more cautious and taking necessary precautions to protect themselves and their families. It is essential that we all remain vigilant and follow the guidelines put forward by health officials to curb the spread of the virus. Meanwhile, our thoughts and prayers are with Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson, and we wish them a speedy recovery.
