He is the one who masks.
Bryan Cranston has revealed that he contracted COVID-19 “a little while ago” – and he wants everyone to disguise and practice social distance.
The Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor, best known for his chemistry teacher, turned to method dealer Walter White in AMC’s critically acclaimed “Breaking Bad” series, saying he became infected despite being “quite strict.” in compliance with the protocols “.
“I contracted the virus. Yes,” he wrote on an Instagram FB,
on Thursday, adding “it sounds scary now that over 150,000 Americans have died because of it. I was one of those lucky ones. Mild symptoms.”
And he urged his 2.5 million followers to ‘keep the damn mask, keep washing your hands and stay away from society’.
“We can prevail – but only if we follow the rules together.”
Furthermore, he revealed in a video accompanying his post that he recently donated his plasma to the UCLA Blood and Platelet Center because his blood has COVID-19 antibodies.
Researchers are studying whether convulsive plasma from recovered coronavirus patients can reduce the severity of COVID-19 disease in sick patients by increasing their ability to fight the virus.
Convalent plasma has been used to treat patients with Ebola and influenza during past viral outbreaks. And preliminary studies have found that plasma conventional from recovered COVID-19 patients is generally safe to use, and appears to increase the survival rate of those hospitalized with COVID-19. The FDA may even authorize the urgent use of antibody-rich plasmas for urgent use in COVID-19 patients as early as next week, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Cranston documented part of his procedure for donating approximately an hour to the video clip, and explained the process in a tape moving down the video.
Basically, donor blood is taken and divided into three parts (including plasma, platelets, and red blood cells) by a centrifuge. Doctors then take the plasma, and the platelets and red blood cells are returned to the donor.
“Beautiful view?” Reads the Cranston cycle.
The center was able to collect 840 milliliters from Cranston during his visit. “Beautiful … liquid gold,” says Cranston, lighting his honey-colored plasma bag. “Hopefully he can do some good.”
He then concludes the video with, “Did you have COVID-19? This is something you may be able to do.”
