Tom Hanks donates plasma for coronavirus patients

Hollywood acclaimed actor Tom Hanks has been recovered from coronavirus and the very first thing the star did was to help coronavirus patients undergoing treatment for the deadly disease.

After donating blood earlier for coronavirus vaccine research, the 63-year-old star and his wife Rita Wilson have now donated their plasma which is said to be carrying coronavirus antibodies.

The Forest Gump actor took to Instagram on Wednesday and told his fans and followers that he donated two bags full of plasma for those in need.

“Plasmatic on 3! 1,2,3 PLASMATIC! Hanx,” he captioned the photo.

Tom Hnaks and his wife became the first celebrities to announce their diagnosis early in March during their Australia tour where Hanks had been filming for a new Elvis Presley biopic.

Narrating the entire journey of him and his wife beating the virus, Hanks had earlier told on the National Defense Radio Show: “Rita went through a tougher time than I did. She had a much higher fever. She had lost her sense of taste and sense of smell.”

“I was very tired. I felt extremely achy. Uncomfortable, didn’t want to be touched and then the fever started. Chills like I’ve never had before. Looking back, I realise I was also losing my sense of taste and smell which I didn’t realize at the time,” he added.
