"We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. We are taking it one-day-at-a-time," wrote Tom Hanks as he announced to the world, via social media, that he and wife Rita Wilson had tested positive for coronavirus, while in Australia for work purposes. After a young woman underwent a test to determine if she caught on COVID-19, after taking a selfie with Tom and Rita, an Australian reporter has tested positive after meeting Wilson at Sydney Opera House.

According to The Hollywood Reporter, Richard Wilkins, a prominent Australian reporter for Channel 9 has tested positive for coronavirus.

I feel 100% ...no symptoms at all! Thanks again ....love to all RW xx," Richard tweeted post the diagnosis.
