Rita Wilson on treatment with Gayle King on CBS this morning



For some reason, rap star Rita Wilson was not the musical guest for husband Tom Hanks’ virtual episode Saturday Night Live last weekend, so Gayle King caught up with her on Tuesday CBS this morning to hear about his recovery from a coronavirus. In fact, when Wilson does not spit bars, she spits out crucial public health truths that the President will not do. Wilson and Hanks were among the first celebrities to open up about the coronavirus contraction, and Wilson describes the symptoms she had, which included “exhaustion, body aches” fever near 102 degrees, loss of taste and smell, and “chills like I’ve never had before. She said that Hanks’ symptoms were milder and that among their close contacts, “the family, our work team, no one tested positive.” But perhaps most importantly, Wilson speaks frankly about the chloroquine treatment, warning that “we don’t really know if it’s useful.” She says, “I don’t know if the medication worked or if it was just time for the fever to stop,” and warns of its extreme side effects: “I was completely nauseous and dizzy. I couldn’t walk and my muscles were very weak. “
