(LOS ANGELES) — Tom Hanks and Idris Elba, two big-name celebs who’ve been diagnosed with COVID-19 coronavirus, took to social media Tuesday to give updates on their condition.
Hanks posted a message to Instagram and Twitter to give the good news and bad news of his situation as he recovers from the virus in Australia.
“Hey folks. Good News: One week after testing Positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same,” he wrote. “No fever but the blahs. Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch.”
As for the bad news? His wife Rita Wilson, who’s also been diagnosed, is beating him at Gin Rummy.
Accompanying his post is a photo of a typewriter – one he “used to love.” The typewriter is branded with the word “Corona.”
“I think it made it a lot more real for some people,” Elba said. “Definitely made it a lot more real for me and my family.”
He added that he’s still not experiencing any symptoms, revealing, “My voice is a little bit tired, I just didn’t sleep that well, but still don’t have any symptoms. I’m checking my fever twice a day, and feel good, feel OK.”
His wife, Sabrina, is currently awaiting the results of her own coronavirus test. They are both in self-quarantine together.
