I'm sure "Oh no" because it's the first "known" person to contract it. Nobody deserves to have this virus. Here's hoping they're able to recover.

OH NO! It is summer in Australia. There goes the wishful thinking "it will go away when the warm weather comes".

Depends. Where have they been for the last 2 or 3 weeks.

Also it is going into Fall Down Under.

Their symptoms, “resembling a cold, as well as body aches and slight fevers” were a bit different then what I have read we should look for. I had these symptoms a few weeks ago.

There is zero chance you would be tested in the US with these symptoms without direct contact with a confirmed patient or flight from China or Italy. There are probably already 1000s of mild cases in the US.

I love Tom Hanks and Rita Wilson. Mild cold symptoms and it's corona virus? I guess the positive test is proof, but what if they have faulty tests?

Of all the people in the world, why does it have to be Tom Hanks? :(

They say many people can have it and do not know as the symptoms can be like a cold and they don’t go to the doctor. They might be an example. I commend them for sharing this with the public so we can follow what happens.

Speaking of Rita Wilson, I recently watched her Ted talk called "what do I want" and then watched her video called "throw me a party". An entirely new aspect of her.

There are no travel restrictions from Australia, China, Japan, South Korea back to the United States. Why?

IMHO, Tom Hanks is a very nice person.

Exactly. The USA is far behind other countries but as they catch up testing the true story will emerge. Canadian authorities have said it will last into 2021 and up to 70% of people will contract the virus. Not sure why people think they can avoid it.

Right. I read the same. I had the chills with mild body aches, only a slight fever for a very short time (99.9) and coughing, which is still lingering, but that is what happens with the flu. I did not have a runny nose or anything like that.

Absolutely. And why would anyone just not feeling well get tested? Like the flu, they're only going to test those very sick or worse. Americans cannot afford the costs to be tested and shouldn't be clogging ERs just because they might have it. That's the biggest issue is that people think they might have something, rush to the ER - when it is not an emergency - and then the hospital is overwhelmed. (Not just in this circumstance but all the damn time)

He's prolly lucky to be in Australia, given the mediocre U.S. response.

I really don’t understand this claim of a mediocre response. More like unprecedented response.
I work at a Hospital in NorCal Covid-19 is a part of our daily existence now. We screen every person that enters our doors. We have multiple tents up to triage overflow patients.
Funny how people form an opinion when they have no real clue what they are talking about.

...lasting until 2021 ...... 70% will contract the virus ..... not a pleasant thought, hope that doesn't happen

I work in the midwest at a large hospital facility and besides verbal screening there is literally no testing allowed by the State health department at this point. You have to have visited a level 2 or 3 country and have severe symptoms.
Edit - I think it's wild that they won't test but then I also think it's wild that people are running to the emergency room and exposing people because they have a sniffle.

... which is totally absurd.
We have a private lab (Quest Diagnostics) that will test any sample submitted by a HC prof.

But I repeat, The Hanks' will likely get better treatment in Australia,
OTOH, they may have concierge medical care, wherever they are.

Tom Hanks may be a "Hollywood elite" (by rep, a nice guy), but he's well-earned his status by entertaining us for more than 40 years with Oscar & Emmy winning performances in movies and TV shows that we all recognize. "Run Forrest, Run."
See: https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_awards_and_nominations_received_by_Tom_Hanks

I’m old enough to remember when being called elite was a compliment. Actually, I think it still is.

Nothing can measure up to (or replace) the classic SNL, but...
IMHO, this crew did a pretty good job, under the circumstances.
