After testing positive for coronavirus and spending five days in an Australian hospital, Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson are giving fans an update on their health.  In a post on Instagram, Hanks informed fans that their symptoms haven't gotten worse but they're still on self-isolation. 

"No fever, but the blahs," Hanks said in the post. "Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch." Hanks then reminded everyone to come together and "flatten the curve." 

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 @ritawilson has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and leads by 201 points. But I have learned not to spread my Vegemite so thick. I travelled here with a typewriter, one I used to love. We are all in this together. Flatten the curve. Hanx
