Gold Coast, Australia:
Tom Hanks has been released from the Australian hospital where he has been isolated since he tested positive for the coronavirus last week, but his wife Rita Wilson remains in the hospital, health officials said Tuesday.
The multi-award-winning actor was on the Gold Coast near Brisbane to shoot an Elvis Presley biopic directed by Australian Baz Luhrmann when he and Wilson, both 63, contracted the disease.
Wilson, a singer-songwriter, had given concerts in Sydney and Brisbane before testing positive for COVID-19, and the Australian authorities have followed the couple's contacts to identify other people who may have been infected.
Australia has confirmed nearly 400 cases of coronavirus with five deaths from the disease.
The couple reported on their encounter with COVID-19 on social media, thanked their Australian caregivers, and asked their fans to follow expert advice on preventing the disease.
Hanks was believed to have returned to the penthouse apartment on the Gold Coast where the couple had stayed while working on the Lurhmann film in which he portrayed Elvis' longtime manager, Colonel Tom Parker should.
