Actor Brian Cranston has revealed that he has signed a contract with COVID-19. Now restored, he donates plasma to support research and encourages others to do so.
In a post on Instagram on Thursday, the “Breaking Bad” star seeks to raise the morale of those suffering from the disease.
“Relatively now, you probably feel a little attached, limiting your mobility, and like me, you’re tired of it,” he wrote, adding, “Well, I just want to encourage you to have a little more patience.” I was pretty strict about following protocols, and yet … I contracted the virus. “
In the post, Cranston said he was “one of the lucky ones”
“I was one of the lucky ones,” he wrote. “Your number of blessings and I urge you to continue wearing the damn mask, wash your hands and stay socially distant. We can prevail – but ONLY if we follow the rules together. Be good – Be good. “
In the two-minute video that accompanies his publication, Cranston can be seen at the UCLA Blood and Platelet Center, which donates plasma.
“I had coronavirus quite early,” he added. “My symptoms were a slight headache, chest tightness and I lost all taste and smell. The symptoms appear differently for everyone who looks. “
The UCLA nurse who helps Cranston explained the plasma donation process, which takes about an hour. Cranston also said he planned to return soon to make another donation, and encouraged others who had the virus to do so.
