Tom Hanks on Thursday offered fans an update on his health after he and his wife, actress Rita Wilson, were diagnosed with the coronavirus.

The "A Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" actor said in a tweet that he and Wilson were in isolation in Australia so they "do not spread it to anyone else."

The couple was working on a film project in the country when they became ill, Hanks had said when he revealed their diagnosis on social media a day earlier.


"We are taking it one-day-at-a-time," the 63-year-old Academy Award-winner said Thursday.


Urging fans to follow "the advice of experts" and to take care of both themselves and each other, Hanks also offered a bit of levity by utilizing one of his classic lines from the 1992 film, "A League of Their Own."

"Remember, despite all the current events, there is no crying in baseball."

In the United States, there have been more than 1,700 diagnoses of COVID-19 and at least 40 deaths, according to data compiled by Johns Hopkins University.
