Breaking Bad Star Bryan Cranston has revealed that he still hasn’t fully regained his sense of taste or smell after contracting coronavirus.
The actor shared a video in July revealing he had caught Covid-19 “not too long ago”, claiming he was “very lucky” as he only had mild symptoms.
At the time, he urged his fans to do what they could to prevent the spread of the virus.
Appearing on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, Cranston has now said that the only symptom that persisted is that “I have lost a percentage of my ability to taste and smell.”
“We were very lucky, however, very seriously,” he said. “We had a few days of pain, but not enough to keep you in bed. I had a temperature of 99 ° C for about three hours, then just exhausted for a week.
He said of his sense of taste and smell: “I think about 75 percent came back, but if someone was making coffee and I walked into a kitchen, I couldn’t. feel, ”he said.
After recovering from the virus, Cranston donated some of his plasma containing Covid-19 antibodies to the UCLA Blood and Platelat Center.
“I hope the plasma donation can help other people,” he says.
