Emmy-winning actor Bryan Cranston has revealed that he recently recoved from mild symptoms of Covid-19, and said he donated his plasma with a hope that his antibodies would help others fight the disease.

The Breaking Bad star opened up about his diagnosis via a two-minute video on Instagram, in which he took his followers through the plasma donation process.

"I wanted to announce that I had COVID-19 a little while ago. Very lucky, very mild symptoms," Cranston said, adding, "So I thought maybe there's something I can do, so I started a program (at UCLA Blood and Platelet Center) so hopefully the plasma donation can help some other people."

Along with the video, he wrote, "Hi. 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. 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."

Cranston was able to donate 840 millilitres of plasma to coronavirus research, and said that he plans to return soon to make another donation.
