Bryan Cranston donates plasma after contracting coronavirus
UPI News Service, 07/31/2020
Breaking Bad icon Bryan Cranston has announced on Instagram he recently battled the coronavirus.
"About now you're probably feeling a little tied down, restricting your mobility and like me, you're tired of this!! Well, I just want to encourage you to have a little more patience. I was pretty strict in adhering to the protocols and still... I contracted the virus," Cranston wrote.
"Yep. it sounds daunting now that over 150,000 Americans are dead because of it. 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 distant. We can prevail - but ONLY if we follow the rules together. Be well - Stay well."
The message accompanied a video showing the 64-year-old actor wearing a face mask as he donates his plasma at the UCLA Blood and Platelet Center in the hope of helping others with the virus.
