Oscar-winning actor Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson had tested positive for the COVID-19 while they were in Australia and they returned to Los Angeles only after they had recovered from the disease at the end of March.

Later, the couple decided to donate their blood and plasma, as they have received confirmations that their systems carry the antibodies for the disease that has caused the global pandemic.

On Thursday, 30 April, Tom Hanks has shared a photo of the blood plasma he is donating to help find a vaccine for coronavirus.

Taking it to twitter, Hanks shared a picture of a bag containing a pale yellow liquid, and captioned: “Here’s last week’s bag of plasma. Such a bag! After the paperwork, it’s as easy as taking a nap.”

The blood of a patient who has recovered from COVID-19 develops antibodies that would fight against the disease. If this plasma is donated to another ill patient, the antibodies would start fighting the disease in the body of the second person. This is the reason behind the people donating blood and plasma who survived the virus.

Can former coronavirus patient’s blood treat newly infected people?

The doctors across the world have been using plasma therapy to treat critically ill COVID-19 patients by transfusing the plasma from a cured person to the ill one.
