After Hollywood star actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson got diagnosed with the new coronavirus disease, the internet was in a state of shock. But since the announcement was made, Hanks and Wilson have been allowed to leave the quarantine zone in the hospital and go home for self-isolation.

Tom Hanks recently updated his Instagram with a post talking about how he feels, and it was all positive as always. Hanks still feels the same mild symptoms and is enjoying his time in self-isolation with wife Rita Wilson. Check out what he had to say:

"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. Bad news: 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".
