Tom Hanks is reflecting on his bout with the novel coronavirus (COVID-19) — and his contrasting symptoms compared to his wife Rita Wilson's experience.
In a new interview withThe Guardian, the Oscar winner, 63, opens up about battling the coronavirus back in March while in Australia with Wilson, whom he married in 1988. Hanks told the outlet that he and his wife are now "fine" and haven't been met with lingering symptoms since recovering.
"Our discomfort because of the virus was pretty much done in two weeks and we had very different reactions, and that was odd," he said. "My wife lost her sense of taste and smell, she had severe nausea, she had a much higher fever than I did. I just had crippling body aches, I was very fatigued all the time and I couldn’t concentrate on anything for more than about 12 minutes."
