The Margin: Tom Hanks finally shares an update on the coronavirus — and inadvertently draws the ire of the internet

Glad you seem to be doing OK, Tom, but apparently there’s a major problem with your latest update.

Last week, actor Tom Hanks put a famous face to the coronavirus pandemic when he announced both he and his wife, Rita Wilson, tested positive while on a shoot in Australia for an upcoming Elvis Presley biopic. He followed with this update a day later.

In the days that followed, the internet, while pushing for more, hadn’t heard from him.

Meanwhile, on a more serious note, Baz Luhrmann, the Australian-born director of the biopic, offered some further insight as to how the rest of the crew is dealing with the virus on location:

As of Sunday morning, at least 2,815 people have tested positive for coronavirus in the U.S, according to a New York Times database, and at least 59 patients with the virus have died.
