Hanks told his followers: “Hey folks. Two weeks after our first symptoms and we feel better. Sheltering in place works like this: You don’t give it to anyone – You don’t get it from anyone. Common sense, no? Going to take a while, but if we take care of each other, help where we can, and give up some comforts…this, too, shall pass. We can figure this out. Hanx.”
The outbreak of COVID-19 has infected more than 339,259 people all over the world and has killed more than 14,000, with thousands of new cases every day. Deaths in the United States are 471, while cases passed 35,000.
In most cases, coronavirus effects are mild or moderate. For others, it’s more and it can cause severe illness including pneumonia. However, the majority of infected people recover.
