Tom Hanks says he and Rita Wilson 'feel better'

Hollywood star Tom Hanks said he and his wife, singer-songwriter Rita Wilson 'feel better' two weeks after coronavirus symptoms began.

The 63-year-old Oscar winner, who along with Rita are in self-isolation at a rented home in Australia, took to social media to give another health update.

"Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better," Hanks wrote on Twitter.

He also encouraged people to practice social distancing, a guideline recommended by experts to prevent the further spread of COVID-19.

"Sheltering in place works like this: You don't give it to anyone - You don't get it from anyone. Common sense, no? Going to take awhile, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts... this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out," the actor added.
