Tom Hanks says he and his wife Rita Wilson will donate blood to help find a coronavirus vaccine: ‘we just found out that we do carry the antibodies’
Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, have offered to donate their blood to help develop a coronavirus vaccine.
The couple tested positive for the virus back in early March while in Australia.
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!
