With Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson becoming the first major celebrities to be tested positive for COVID-19, fans are going into a frenzy.

Tom Hanks took it up on social media to post about his condition. He posted on Instagram, "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."

He continued, "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."

Fans of the actor expressed their worries and concerns on social media after the news reached them. A fan tweeted, "Spare Tom Hanks and Rita. Take me instead, I volunteer as tribute for my hero. I pray for both of you to recover. Be strong Hanx".

Another fan tweeted, "Tom Hanks has tested positive for coronavirus NOW WE PANIC" replying to this thread of tweet a fan dissed about the American healthcare saying, "It's okay he's in Australia. He should be able to have better healthcare than here in America"

A fan said: "Tom Hanks and wifey have it, no one is safe... love youuu, prayers"

Celebrities too are worried. Standup comedian Whitney Cummings took to Twitter to express her feelings, saying, "It’s like it picked the celebrity we cared the most about to make a point." She added: "I mean Tom Hanks is who would play the guy in the movie about Coronavirus".

While most people did not take the virus threat seriously, this has now led to an eye-opening situation, leading people to take their healthcare and well-being seriously. "Millions of Americans before tonight: People are overreacting to the coronavirus," tweeted a fan calling out on the lack of seriousness.

"Thanks Hanks! It makes it real to see this! Must take it seriously! Hopefully, y’all will recover quickly and not held very long 😍" a fan commented on the Instagram post. 

"Wishing you both get healthy soon! Sending prayers. You two are the perfect Ambassadors for the Coronavirus 😊 You exhibit the right attitude and example of social awareness, positivity, and grace. Get well soon!" a fan commented.
