Tom Hanks, Rita Wilson Discharged From Hospital, Says Son Chet


Hollywood couple Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson have been discharged from an Australian hospital where they were in isolation since testing positive for the coronavirus, their son Chet Hanks said.

As per reports, health officials in Gold Coast said Hanks checked out of the hospital, but Wilson remained hospitalised, but Chet confirmed that both his parents were discharged.

Last week, Hanks revealed that he and his actor wife tested positive for COVID-19 in Australia, where the multiple Oscar winner was working on Baz Lurhmann's Elvis Presley biopic.

Wilson, also a singer-songwriter, had given concerts in Sydney and Brisbane before testing positive for the virus.

Chet said both his parents, 63, had been released from hospital and were feeling a lot better. "They're out of the hospital. They're still self-quarantined, obviously, but they're feeling a lot better. So that's a relief,” he said.

Warner Bros shut down preproduction on the Elvis film after Hanks' diagnosis. Director Lurhmann has gone into self-isolation, along with his family, after coming into contact with Hanks on the set.
