Could Tom Hanks Get Coronavirus Again? Actor Shares Antibody Test Results


Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson know firsthand the effects of coronavirus and recently shared that they are both not fully recovered just yet.

In a recent interview with NBC News’ Lester Holt, the actor shared the results of his recent antibody test.

"We've been paying attention to the results of some blood studies and plasma studies," said Hanks, who donated his plasma to COVID-19 patients.

Hanks shared that he found out that he and his wife have fewer antibodies now than they did at the beginning. Doctors told the couple that the antibodies begin to fade, and it is quite possible that they can catch some form of the coronavirus again.

During an appearance on “Today,” the Oscar winner said the acts people can take to prevent spreading COVID-19 are “simple.”

"The idea of doing one's part should be so simple," Hanks said.

"Wear a mask, social distance, wash your hands," the 63-year-old added. "That alone means you are contributing to the betterment of your house, your work, your town, society as a whole and it’s such a small thing, and it’s a mystery to me how somehow that has been wiped out of what should be ingrained in the behavior of us all — simple things, do your part."

Earlier this month, Hanks shared that he is not pleased with people who don’t wear face masks.

The "Forrest Gump" star spoke about the importance of heeding the CDC’s guidelines, wearing face coverings, and social distancing.

Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, were among the first celebrities to test positive for coronavirus while doing some pre-production on a film in Australia in March.

The duo quarantined on location and kept the public updated about their symptoms which included feeling tired and experiencing body aches.

The couple returned to the states towards the end of March where they continued to shelter in place and practice social distancing.
