“I am not in danger, Skylar. I am the danger.” –Walter White.
In the blockbuster Tv series ‘Breaking Bad’, Bryan Cranston exclaims this to his character’s wife. Sure, he was a dreadful man in the series, running a meth empire but in real life, the actor just got out of the biggest danger right now. He has recovered from mild symptoms of COVID-19.
The actor took to Instagram, to break this news amongst his fans. He informed that he has donated his plasma too, with a belief that his antibodies would be of some help for others.
Wearing a mask, he recorded the video and enumerated the process at the blood and plasma centre, run by the University Of California at Los Angeles.

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. BC
