The actor confirmed the news on his 60th birthday on Monday.

Here is a look at some of the high-profile celebrities who have had Covid-19:

In March the actor revealed he had tested positive for Covid-19, becoming one of the first famous faces to do so.

He later told the Radio Times that while he was asymptomatic the illness had a “traumatic” impact on him psychologically.

The Hollywood actor and his wife Rita Wilson also contracted coronavirus in March while they were in Australia.

Hanks subsequently told NBC’s Today programme he felt “rotten” while he had the virus and he has spoken out in favour of people wearing masks and adhering to social distancing rules.

Last month the Breaking Bad star said he was “one of the lucky ones” after showing only mild symptoms after testing positive.

He shared the news on Instagram alongside a video of him donating his plasma – the liquid part of the blood – to scientists helping to fight the disease.
