Hanks is used to bowing to the changed landscape. Back in March, while he was filming in Australia, he and his wife, Rita Wilson, became, he says, “the celebrity canaries in the coalmine of all things Covid-19”. They were among the earliest and certainly most famous people in the west to be diagnosed with the virus on March 10, and were hospitalized for three days. I ask if they have suffered any after effects of the illness.

“Oh no, we’re fine. Our discomfort because of the virus was pretty much done in two weeks and we had very different reactions, and that was odd. My wife lost her sense of taste and smell, she had severe nausea, she had a much higher fever than I did. I just had crippling body aches, I was very fatigued all the time and I couldn’t concentrate on anything for more than about 12 minutes. That last bit is kinda like my natural state anyway,” he says, with another chuckle, as if he were my father telling me there are no more monsters under the bed.

I interviewed Wilson shortly after she and Hanks had returned to the US. She still sounded pretty shaken, and we discussed how she talked to their children about the illness (she and Hanks have two sons, Chet and Truman; Hanks also has two older children from a previous marriage, Colin and Elizabeth). Was Hanks scared? He makes a scoffing face before I’ve even finished the question.

“When we were in the hospital, I said: ‘I’m 63, I have type 2 diabetes, I had a stent in my heart – am I a red flag case?’ But as long as our temperatures did not spike, and our lungs did not fill up with something that looked like pneumonia, they were not worried. I’m not one who wakes up in the morning wondering if I’m going to see the end of the day or not. I’m pretty calm about that.”

The funniest thing about this particular signature is that by the time you realise it doesn't say anything, it's too late to stop reading it.

Quarantine hotels guarded by police and ADF. Not a security guard in sight. What a beautiful thing and as it should've been many months ago.

Pity the ADF staff are already winging about their own personal containment and lack of mental health support.  Confused

And certainly hope the police are better trained and educated that their counterparts at Sydney airport.  Dead

Let’s hope Danny Boy copes with these 5 new positive cases in hotel quarantine better than he did earlier this year.With overseas arrivals only beginning to arrive in the past week and more expected the number of positives can only blow out.
Touch wood.

So, just to explain something, as I stated in March 2020,

Covid 19 is  BIOWEAPON, consisting of 3 things

SARS
AIDS
and an older strain of Flu.

Queensland Uni, tried to target the AIDS part, in their vaccine.
By giving the patient AIDS

You simply cant vaccinate AIDS

I said it before, and I will say it again

COVID 19 CAN'T BE VACCINATED

It's a Bioweapon.

Who would have guessed / predicted that our very own Vaccine would have the plug pulled on it ! And everyone's going on as if it actually achieved something after the squillions squandered. Morrison smiled as he announced the failure. Wasn't a regular harping on about vaccine success not long ago ? Wink

The Queensland vaccine hasn't failed to do the same thing the other successful vaccines have, it just has a problem that it sometimes tests positive for HIV in some people when it isn't.

Wasn’t expected to be able to be rolled out until the end of next year either so somewhat pointless to continue.

How many of us are going to be first in line for this vaccine ? Must say I've never been an anti-vaxxer type - far from it. However any genuine risk vs reward analysis would be interesting - at least in the early days here in Australia i would have thought. USA / Europe not so much.

Very likely that countries will require vaccination to enter so if you want to travel you will want to get it. If you don’t then yeah, I can see why you might hold back for a while.

Every politician / scientist / senior public servant should be the first lined up & jabbed - with their kids. Compulsory. That will be the ONLY way we will ever know the answer to my question above

Tests positive sometimes to HIV, not Coronavirus. Works perfectly for Corona but triggers an immune response in some people where their body is wrongly in belief that AIDS virus is present.

Well, we have the luxury of it not being urgent here as we ostensibly dont have the virus in this country, due to the brilliant job of our health professionals and our politicians listening to them.

Exactly PT. And we would not want to take up vaccine that is more needed in third-world countries that are not getting it because they cannot afford it. All the little kiddies dying. Correct PT ?
