Tom Hanks' Sister Reveals How He's Doing Since Coronavirus Diagnosis

Tom Hanks‘ sister, Sandra Hanks Benoiton, gave an update on how her brother and his wife Rita Wilson are doing amid their COVID-19 diagnosis.

She said they are taking the “one-day-at-a-time approach.”

“I have communicated with my brother. He’s not great, but still okay. [Am I] shocked? No. He’s an actor, not a god [but] medical care in Australia is good,” Sandra said to Daily Mail.

Tom and Rita, who were diagnosed in Australia, just moved out of the hospital to a quarantine in a private home.

Meanwhile, Sandra actually lives in Italy, and she’s under quarantine while the country also fights Coronavirus.

“We’re okay here… staying home is fine with us, and this community is wonderful. I’m lucky to be here, the spirit of the people is amazing! The US and the UK are failing miserably, however,” she said.

Tom Hanks Is Losing In Rummy To Wife Rita Wilson During Quarantine After Being Released From The Hospital

Rita Wilson is showing off her skills in rummy during their quarantine, Tom Hanks shared with fans in a new Instagram post.

The 63-year-old actor is updating fans about how they’re both doing after being discharged from the hospital one week after their coronavirus diagnosis.

“Hey folks. Good News: One week after testing Positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same. No fever but the blahs. Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch,” Tom wrote, sharing the good things about being out of the hospital.

However, the bad news is that “my wife @ritawilson has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and leads by 201 points.”

“But I have learned not to spread my Vegemite so thick. I travelled here with a typewriter, one I used to love. We are all in this together. Flatten the curve. Hanx.”

Chet Hanks Updates Fans on Parents Tom Hanks & Rita Wilson's Health Since Leaving the Hospital

Chet Hanks is (once again) the voice of reason we all need right now.

The 29-year-old actor took to Instagram on Monday (March 16) to let concerned fans know how his parents Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are doing after testing positive for coronavirus.

Fans will be happy to know that the couple has since left the hospital and are now under quarantine at a rental home.

“They’re out of the hospital,” Chet Hanks said. “They’re still self-quarantined obviously, but they’re feeling a lot better, so that’s a relief.”

“My prayers go out to you because a lot of people are suffering other than my parents right now,” he continued. “I think the most important thing is we just stay calm because panicking really isn’t necessary, and it’s just making things more difficult than they need to be. If you went to the grocery store and hoarded all the water and toilet paper for yourself I think you’re the problem.”

“You should think more all of others for once,” he added. “I think if we all just be a little less selfish and a little more selfless we’re gonna be completely fine.”
