Actor Tom Hanks and his wife, Rita Wilson, both 63, were among the first high-profile individuals to contract the Wuhan coronavirus, while they were in Australia where Hanks was making his new movie, an Elvis Presley biopic.
The couple went into quarantine, then made a full recovery and were allowed to return to their home in Los Angeles.
On Tuesday, April 21, 2020, msn.com reports that Hanks’ and Wilson’s blood will be used by medical researchers to develope a vaccine for the Wuhan virus.
The couple had enrolled in a medical study to determine if their antibodies would be useful for scientists working on developing a vaccine.
Speaking on NPR podcast ‘Wait Wait… Don’t Tell Me!’, Hanks revealed that they have been approved to donate blood because they do “carry the antibodies,” and joked that he is responsible for the creation of a “Hank-ccine”:
“We have not only been approached; we have said, do you want our blood? Can we give plasma? And, in fact, we will be giving it now to the places that hope to work on what I would like to call the Hank-ccine.”
Tom Hanks’ son, Chet, however, finds this “troublesome”.
In a video tweeted by Jimmy Brangus, Chet Hanks says that “it is true” what alternative media websites like 4chan and 8chan say — that Tom Hanks is a willing tool of those advancing a “new world order” agenda. Chet says:
“Ever since The Simpsons predicted my dad being the spokesperson for the coronavirus…it’s been troublesome, to say the least.”
Was Chet being sarcastic?
