Stars Affected by Coronavirus: Tom Hanks, Orlando Bloom and More

  Stars Affected by Coronavirus: Tom Hanks, Orlando Bloom and More Close to home. Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson, Orlando Bloom and Justin Trudeau are just a handful of the celebrities and public figures who have been affected by the coronavirus pandemic. The COVID-19 outbreak began in Wuhan, China, in December 2019 and soon after spread to the United States, with the first confirmed case making its way into the country in January 2020. Hollywood was not immune to the illness either. Many movie and TV sets shut down production in the wake of the global health crisis, and events — from concert tours to film festivals — were postponed or canceled as a result. In turn, stars began to feel the effects of coronavirus. Hanks and Wilson, who married in April 1988, were among the first famous faces to be diagnosed. “@ritawilson and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too,” the Toy Story star explained via Instagram in March 2020. “To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.” Hanks noted that the pair were taking the necessary precautions. “Well, now. What to do next?” he wrote. “The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We’ll keep the world posted and updated.
