He is the one who disguises.
Brian Cranston has revealed that he has downgraded COVID-19 “just now” – and wants everyone to disguise and practice social distancing.
Award-winning actor Amy and Tony, perhaps best known for playing chemistry teacher, turned Matt dealer Walter White into the critically acclaimed AMC series “Breaking Bad,” said he became infected, although he was “quite strict in adhering to protocols “.
“I contracted the virus. Yes – he wrote on FB on Instagram,
Thursday’s post, adding “sounds daunting now that more than 150,000 Americans are dead because of it. I was one of the lucky ones. Mild symptoms. ”
And he called on his 2.5 million followers to “continue to wear the damn mask, continue to wash their hands and stay socially distant.”
“We can prevail – but ONLY if we follow the rules together.”
Moreover, he revealed in a video accompanying his post that he recently donated his plasma to the UCLA Blood and Platelet Center because he had COVID-19 antibodies in his blood.
The researchers investigated whether the recovery plasma from recovered coronavirus patients could reduce the severity of COVID-19 disease in sick patients by increasing their ability to fight the virus.
Convalescent plasma is used to treat patients with Ebola and influenza during past viral outbreaks. Preliminary studies have also found that reconstitution plasma from recovered patients with COVID-19 is generally safe to use and appears to increase the survival rate of those hospitalized with COVID-19. The FDA may even authorize the emergency use of antibody-rich plasma for emergency use in patients with COVID-19 as early as next week, according to the Wall Street Journal.
Cranston documented part of his roughly hourly donation procedure in the video and explained the process in a ticker scrolling under the video.
In general, the donor’s blood is taken and divided into three parts (including plasma, platelets and red blood cells) by centrifugation. The doctors then take the plasma and the platelets and the red blood cells are returned to the donor.
“Pretty neat, huh?” Cranston’s mark reads.
The center was able to collect 840 milliliters of Cranston during its visit. “Beautiful … liquid gold,” Cranston says, looking at the bag of honey-colored plasma. “I hope it can be of some use.”
He then wraps up the video with “Did you have COVID-19? This is something you can do. ”
