He is the one who masks.
Bryan Cranston has revealed that he hired COVID-19 “some time ago” and wants everyone to be able to mask and practice social distancing.
Emmy and Tony Award-winning actor, perhaps best known for playing chemistry professor, medical distributor Walter White of the acclaimed AMC series “Breaking Bad,” said he became infected despite being “quite strict in adhering.” to the protocols “.
“I contracted the virus. Yes,” he wrote on Instagram FB,
“I find it disconcerting now that more than 150,000 Americans have died. I was one of the lucky ones. Mild symptoms.”
And he urged his 2.5 million followers to “keep wearing the damn mask, wash their hands and stay socially away.”
“We can prevail, but ONLY if we follow the rules together.”
What’s more, he revealed in a video accompanying his post that he recently donated his plasma to the UCLA Blood & Platelet Center, because his blood has COVID-19 antibodies.
Researchers are studying whether convalescent plasma from patients recovered with coronavirus could reduce the severity of COVID-19 disease in patients who increase their ability to fight the virus.
Convalescent plasma has been used to treat patients with Ebola and the flu during past viral outbreaks. And previous studies have found that convalescent plasma from patients recovered with COVID-19 is generally safe to use, and appears to increase the survival rate of those hospitalized with COVID-19. The FDA could even authorize the emergency use of antibody-rich plasma for emergency use in patients with COVID-19 as early as next week, the Wall Street Journal reported.
Cranston documented part of his approximately one-hour donation procedure on the video clip, and explained the process on a bookmark that scrolled below the video.
Basically, the donor’s blood is taken and separated 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.
“Good enough, no?” The Cranston ticker reads.
The center was able to collect 840 milliliters of Cranston during his visit. “Nice … golden liquid,” Cranston says, feeding the honey-colored plasma bag. “I hope I can do it right.”
Then send the video with: “Have you had COVID-19? This is able to do. ”
