Wow, so sad, they are ones of the nicest people around...

I'm sure they're already insured for millions when they travel. The elite don't have the same travel insurance as the rest of us.

Hope both of them recover soon.

They are one of the most decent people in the industry.

What happened to the theory that the virus does not survive in hot climate?

Best luck to them. Travel insurance does not cover virus but not that the Hanks will have to worry about that. The movies will also be insured.

But shouldn't he have been tested before any symptoms were present? After all, both live high-risk lifestyles, constantly meeting new people and traveling.

A New York City man wasn't tested for coronavirus even though he had symptoms and had gone to Japan. It highlights the troublingly limited scope of US testing. ... and escorted him to a private clinic

If it takes five days to manifest, where did they pick it up, I wonder?

Wealthy people get sick just like everyone else. The only difference it that they are much more likely to have a doctor make house calls and pay cash.

The same advice - get rest, plenty of fluid and call the doctor if it gets worse applies to them, just like everyone else. They will use tele-medicine just like normal people do too.

My US insurance encourages calling in, using video chats, and only going in for an office visit/hospital when necessary.

BTW, testing for the Wu-Flu is included in all US health insurance plans now.

Not cool but there is a 99.7% chance of survival, he will be fine.

According to this, they were in Sydney last week.

Hopefully, neither one of them has been in contact with their granddaughter since being infected.

There will have travel insurance plans for the rich that allow medivacs on private helicopters/planes, repatriation to the best hospitals in the US/Europe and stuff like that.

I noticed a lot of criticism from few Americans toward our government, culture and country for the way we were handling this virus initially. Everything from the way we don’t wash our hands properly (which I found laughable coming from westerners as we are one of the most hygienic nation in the world) to how slow our government is reacting. Now that the virus has reached across the pacific and how similar our predicaments are/were, lets see how well you handle this.

Guess we're rich then (btw, we aren't). We are just "well off."

Whenever I'm going to the ends of the Earth for some fun, I spend the $90-$150 and get a policy like that.

It's cutting really close to home when Tom Hanks tests positive for the coronavirus.
