Breaking Bad actor Bryan Cranston is the latest celebrity to reveal they contracted COVID-19. "Very lucky, very mild symptoms", Cranston said. He said that he was among the "lucky ones" who survived the virus.
The video posted to Instagram showed Cranston going through a plasma-donation session, something he made a decision to do after contracting the virus. It sounds daunting now that over 150,000 Americans are dead because of it. In the caption for the video, Cranston said his symptoms included "a slight headache, tightness of chest and (loss of) taste and smell".
"About now you're probably feeling a little tied down, restricting your mobility and like me, you're exhausted of this!" said Cranston in an Instagram caption.
After only enduring "mild symptoms", Cranston considers himself to be "one of the lucky ones".
In a video accompanying the post, the former Malcolm in the Middle star, 64, shared his experience donating his own plasma - which now contains coronavirus antibodies - after he'd recovered from the virus.
"Here I am at UCLA donation center, about to give [plasma]", continued Cranston in a second video clip inside the UCLA Blood and Platelet Center.
Cranston urged his followers to wear a mask, wash their hands and practice social distancing.
So, the actor's encouraging people to remain patient and vigilant - and keep following the rules - in order to prevail through this pandemic. "Be well - Stay well. BC".
Tom Hanks and wife Rita Wilson were two of the earliest A-list patients, both coming down with COVID-19 during an Australian visit in March.
