Tom Hanks just announced minutes ago he tested positive for coronavirus - NBA is also suspending its season

One of the most famous actors in the world just gave some very bad news to his fans: he and his wife Rita Wilson have just tested positive for coronavirus.

Via his personal Instagram account:

"Hello, folks. Rita and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive.

Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?

We’ll keep the world posted and updated. Take care of yourselves! Hanx!"

The NBA also said that it would suspend its season after a player on the Utah Jazz tested positive for coronavirus.

These updates regarding Hanks and the NBA all hit within minutes at the same time on Wednesday night. This is still a developing story.

President Trump gave an address to the nation on Wednesday night about the World Health Organization calling this an official "pandemic."
