Actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, are out of the hospital after contracting COVID-19, their son Chet Hanks said.

Hanks and Wilson were admitted to an Australian hospital last week after testing positive for the coronavirus.

What are the details?

In a Monday evening Instagram post, Chet said, "Quick update on my folks: They're out of the hospital. They're still self-quarantined obviously, but they're feeling a lot better, so that's a relief."

Chet added, "I just want to say to anyone else out there who has loved ones — or if you, yourself are afflicted with the virus, my prayers go out to you, because a lot of people are suffering other than my parents right now. I think if you went to the grocery store and hoarded all the toilet paper, you're the problem. You know what I mean? You should just think more of others for once.

"I know this is crazy," he concluded, "but I'm just wishing everyone the best and we're going to get through this."

Tom, 63, who suffers from Type 2 diabetes, confirmed the COVID-19 diagnosis in a social media post last week, saying that he and his wife both fell ill after contracting the virus.

At the time, he wrote, "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."

In a later post, he added, "There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness. There are things we can all do to get through this by following the advice of experts and taking care of ourselves and each other, no?"
