A week after being diagnosed with the coronavirus and a day after being discharged from the hospital, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson remain in isolation in an Australian rental home, with Hanks saying he feels the "blahs" but has no fever.

The two American actors provided an update on social media, documenting their time playing cards and doing chores around the house during their self-quarantine.

"Hey folks. Good news: One week after testing positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same. No fever but the blahs. Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch. Bad news: my wife has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and now leads by 201 points," Hanks posted on Instagram, along with a photo of typewriter he brought along for his travels.


"We are all in this together. Flatten the curve," he added.

The couple traveled to Australia's Gold Coast in late January to shoot a film; Hanks has been cast as Elvis Presley's manager in a biopic directed by Baz Luhrmann. The film, initially scheduled for a 2021 release, suspended production, Warner Bros. told The Associated Press.

Australian television journalist Richard Wilkins revealed he tested positive for the virus after meeting Wilson at the Sydney Opera House on March 7 and again at Nine Network's studio in Sydney two days later.
