In light of her coronavirus diagnosis, actress Rita Wilson is addressing the situation with humour. Here's what she shared on Instagram about how she's passing time!

Rita Wilson may have the coronavirus, but she doesn't seem all that concerned about it! On Wednesday, Tom Hanks shared the news via Instagram that both he and Wilson tested positive for the viral illness while abroad in Australia. Since Wilson and Hanks are currently both under quarantine so as to avoid spreading the coronavirus to others they may come in contact with, they've been forced to find ways to occupy their time.
