Tom Hanks has donated more of his plasma to medical research in a bid to aid the efforts to develop a coronavirus vaccine.
The Hollywood star, 63, and wife Rita Wilson, also 63, tested positive for Covid-19 in March and were among the first major celebrities to contract the virus.
The couple, who were in Australia ahead of filming for Hanks’ next film, have since recovered and have returned to the United States.
Speaking to NPR in April, Hanks revealed that he and Wilson were set to donate their blood and plasma to institutions working on what he jokingly called a “Hank-ccine.”
He later shared a photo of a bag of plasma on social media, telling fans that “after the paperwork,” the process was “as easy as taking a nap.”
Posting on Instagram on Thursday, the Oscar winner showed that he had returned to donate two more bags of plasma.
He shared pictures of the fluid in bags as well as photos of the plasma being extracted from his arm and leg.
He captioned the images: “Plasmatic on 3! 1, 2, 3, PLASMATIC!”
Speaking of his experience with the virus in an interview with the National Defence Radio Show in April, Hanks said that his wife “went through a much tougher time.”
He revealed that while he experienced “bad body aches and was very fatigued,” Wilson “had a much higher fever.”
“She lost her sense of taste and sense of smell,” he explained. “She got absolutely no joy from food for a better part of three weeks.”
