After surviving the coronavirus disease (COVID-19), Christopher de Leon has donated his plasma in hopes of helping other COVID-19 patients recover from the illness.

“Glory to God! My plasma,” he simply wrote on his Instagram post.

The Love Thy Woman star tested positive for COVID-19 on March 17. He was declared negative of the virus on April 14.

The veteran actor’s wife, Sandy Andolong, also took to social media to share a photo of her husband along with the staff of St. Luke’s Global while he was donating his plasma. 

Her caption read: “Done. Hubby donated his plasma this afternoon. Thank you to all the doctors & staff of St. Luke’s Global for your help & assistance. All honor & glory to GOD.”

Experts from the Philippine General Hospital (PGH) are striving to find a cure to the disease using the plasma of those who survived the infection. (READ: PGH needs more plasma donors)
