Earlier, the actors had volunteered to donate blood and plasma for COVID-19 research, Hanks revealed on NPR’s Wait Wait Don’t Tell Me! podcast via MSN.

The first Hollywood personalities to have COVID-19 infection, Hanks and Wilson revealed their diagnosis on 11 March.

They returned home to Los Angeles at the end of March after quarantining and recovering from their symptoms.

The couple was in Australia for the pre-production of Baz Luhrmann’s untitled Elvis Presley film from Warner Bros, when they contracted the disease. Hanks stars as Elvis’ manager, Colonel Tom Parker.

The couple has since then been spreading awareness about the virus and has been sharing their journey of recovering from the condition.
