Actor Tom Hanks says he's still suffering from some symptoms of coronavirus as he and his singer wife Rita Wilson continue recovering in Queensland.
Hanks and Wilson were discharged from a Gold Coast hospital on Tuesday, about a week after being quarantined with the virus.
They are now in self-isolation and appear to be killing time by playing cards, according to a tweet Hanks posted on earlier on Wednesday.
"Hey folks. Good News: One week after testing Positive, in self-isolation, the symptoms are much the same. No fever but the blahs," Hanks posted.
"Folding the laundry and doing the dishes leads to a nap on the couch. Bad news: My wife @ritawilson has won 6 straight hands of Gin Rummy and leads by 201 points."
The tweet was accompanied by a photo of a Corona branded typewriter.
He also referenced his Vegemite spreading skills which were heavily criticised online after he posted a photo of two pieces of toast thickly smothered in the popular spread.
"I travelled here with a typewriter, one I used to love. We are all in this together. Flatten the curve. Hanx.
"But I have learned not to spread my Vegemite so thick."
The Oscar-winning actor, who is in Australia filming a Baz Luhrmann biopic about Elvis Presley, is not believed to have infected any other cast or crew, but production was shut down for two weeks.
