Hello, folks. @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. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive. Well, now. What to do next? 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 a one-day-at-a-time approach, no? We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!
Hanks recently went on the NPR Podcast, Wait Wait…Don’t Tell Me!, and joked that their donation would be called the “Hank-ccine.”
Hopefully, their blood will benefit COVID-19 research in the long run. For now, remember to practice social distancing and wash your hands frequently to prevent the spread of the virus.
