Tom Hanks Reflects on his and Wife Rita Wilson’s Painful COVID-19 Symptoms!
The coronavirus pandemic has the world shook and that’s a fact. No one is safe from the curse of this pandemic. So, it wasn’t shocking news when we found out that none other than Hollywood Actor Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson tested positive for it last month in Australia. The stars then went into self-quarantine to recover. Recently, Hanks shed light on his and Wilson’s painful symptoms.
“I was Wiped”, The Captain Phillips Star Said about his COVID-19 Experience!
Prior to the lockdown, Hanks was in Australia with wife Rita Wilson. He was working on a project revolving around singer Elvis Presley. There, the couple contracted the coronavirus. After staying in self-quarantine for the specified duration, they returned to America. Since then, they have been adhering to the lockdown guidelines.
Tom Hanks revealed that even though Wilson’s experience was more painful than his, the symptoms he had made him feel “wiped”. While in isolation in a Queensland hospital (Australia), he attempted to work out but couldn’t keep up after 12 minutes. While speaking to the National Defense Radio Show about his interaction with a medical professional responsible for treating him, Hanks recalled,
‘I just had the weirdest thing. I just tried to do basic stretches and exercises on the floor and I couldn’t even get halfway through.’ And she looked at me through her glasses like she was talking to the dumbest human being. And she said, ‘You have Covid-19.’
Tom Hanks Discusses Rita Wilson’s Painful Symptoms
While addressing Rita Wilson’s painful journey throughout the self-quarantine phase, Hanks said that his wife had a tougher time with the virus than he did. He continued,
She had a much higher fever and she had some other symptoms. She lost her sense of taste and smell.
She got absolutely no joy from food for a better part of three weeks … She was so nauseous she had to crawl on the floor from the bed to the facilities.
We hope that the couple is now completely free of all coronavirus symptoms. It was surely a disturbing feeling to hear them describe their pain. For all of you reading this, please stay safe and practice precaution at all times!
