Legendary actor Tom Hanks has for the second time donated his blood plasma to aid COVID-19 patients.
The veteran movie star was one of the first celebrities to reveal that he tested positive for the coronavirus near the start of the pandemic in March 2020, and now he has announced that he was lending blood to an organization as part of his contribution in the fight against the disease.
Page Six reported that Hanks said he was returning to the blood donating clinic to help out for the second time. He shared a picture of the process on his Instagram account.
Hanks disclosed his first plasma donation a month ago, saying at the time that it was easy as “taking a nap.” That was after he and his wife Rita Wilson had said they were going to donate blood to help COVID-19 patients.
During his appearance on NPR’s podcast Wait Wait … Don’t Tell Me!, Hanks had stated that he and his wife learned that they had the anti-bodies after recovering from coronavirus.
