SYDNEY: Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, have left a hospital in Australia`s Queensland state five days after testing positive for the coronavirus, People magazine reported on Monday.
The pair are now resting at a rented home in Australia and remain under quarantine in the house, the US magazine`s report said, citing a representative of the actor.
Last week, Hanks wrote on Twitter that he and Wilson had tested positive for the virus in Australia, where he is working on a film, after they felt tired and achy with slight fevers. Both Hanks and Wilson are 63 years old.
