Forrest Gump is probably one of Hank’s most recognizable performances.

Forrest Gump, which was released in 1994, followed the story of an Alabama man with a low IQ living through some of America’s most iconic and life-changing events, such as presidencies of J.F Kennedy and Johnson, the Vietnam war, and Watergate.

So, quite understandably, people were horrified to hear that he had caught the deadly coronavirus over the weekend.

Where he shared an image of a discarded doctor glove with the caption: “Hello, folks. @ritawilson and I are down here in Australia. We felt a bit tired, like we had colds, and some body aches. Rita had some chills that came and went. Slight fevers too. To play things right, as is needed in the world right now, we were tested for the Coronavirus, and were found to be positive. Well, now. What to do next? The Medical Officials have protocols that must be followed. We Hanks’ will be tested, observed, and isolated for as long as public health and safety requires. Not much more to it than a one-day-at-a-time approach, no?”
