Tom Hanks' Latest Coronavirus Update Is Inspired By Mister Rogers

March 15, 2020

Tom Hanks is maintaining his positive attitude despite being in isolation with coronavirus. Now, he's using his affiliation with Mister Rogers to spread some light.

In his latest Instagram post, he posted a source of inspiration during this crisis.

“Thanks to the Helpers. Let’s take care of ourselves and each other. Hanx,” the 63-year-old actor wrote.

Today reported that during hard times, Mister Rogers remembered a quote from his mother. “My mother would say to me, ‘Look for the helpers. You will always find people who are helping,” he said. “To this day, especially in times of ‘disaster,’ I remember my mother’s words, and I am always comforted by realizing that there are still so many helpers, so many caring people in this world.”

Last week, the "Beautiful Day in the Neighborhood" star, 63, shared an update one day after announcing that he and his wife, 63, tested positive for coronavirus.

The actor posted a picture on Instagram of the two in Australia, where they were diagnosed and are currently in isolation.

"Hello folks," the caption read. "Rita Wilson and I want to thank everyone here Down Under who are taking such good care of us. We have Covid-19 and are in isolation so we do not spread it to anyone else. There are those for whom it could lead to a very serious illness."

The actor maintained a positive outlook on the tough situation. He mentioned how he and his wife will handle this circumstance one day a time.
