The actor, along with his wife and actress, Rita Wilson, revealed that they tested positive for the coronavirus on Wednesday. In a statement, the Cast Away star said, "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?"

Now, the 63-year-old is sharing an update from Down Under. Posted on his Instagram was a picture of a glass of water, two slices of toast and the Australian staple, vegemite.
