The actor, the celebrity who played the chemistry teacher turned from the meth crystal drug lord Walter White, took to Instagram to share the news that he had been “one of the lucky ones” to survive the virus.
“Hello. Around now you are probably feeling a little connected, limiting your mobility and like me, you are tired of it !!” he wrote. “Well, I just want to encourage you to have a little more patience. I was pretty strict in adhering to protocols and yet … I contracted the virus. Yes. That sounds scary now that over 150,000 Americans have died because his I was one of the lucky ones.
“Mild symptoms. I count my blessings and urge you to keep wearing the damn mask, keep washing your hands and stay socially isolated. We can prevail ̵1; but ONLY if we follow the rules together. Be good. “Stay well. BC”
The center’s website says: “You may have antibodies in your plasma that attack the virus. Your donated plasma can be used for compassionate treatment or as part of a scientific test to finally determine if this treatment works. is also used to support the study efforts such as conducting tests to test immunity to the virus “.
Donors must have tested positive for the condition or the presence of antibodies, and must be fully recovered – the website says the center only accepts donations “after you have been completely well without symptoms for at least 14 days”.
In a videotape, Cranston said: “I was sick with covidium early enough. My symptoms were a slight headache, chest tightness and I lost all the flavors and aromas!”
The footage, which has been viewed nearly 270,000 times, shows Cranston before entering the facility, as it has been prepared in advance, and during the process.
Introducing the health worker receiving the donation as Ron, he laughs and says, “I noticed Ron was coming a little nervous this morning, a little shaky – what is your purpose, Ron?”
Ron explains the process, saying blood is taken and then separated by a centrifuge. Plasma is extracted and harvested, then platelets and red blood cells are returned to the donor.
In a text posted throughout the video, Cranston writes: “The whole process took about an hour, thank god for the old movies.”
Viewers can then see that the actor had watched “A Face in the Crowd”, a 1957 drama starring Andy Griffith.
When the collected plasma bags are shown, Cranston says, “Beautiful … liquid gold.”
Finally, he signed on tape: “Today they collected 840ml! I will make sure to come back and give more.”
He then asks, “Have you had Covid-19? This is something you may be able to do,” before adding a link to his post.
