Tom Hanks and his wife Rita Wilson were two of the first celebs to announce they tested positive for COVID-19 and now they would like to donate their blood to research being that the blood now carries COVID-19 antibodies.

“We have not only been approached, we have said, ‘Do you want our blood? Can we give plasma?’” Tom said during a podcast on NPR.”And in fact, we will be giving it now to the places that hope to work on what I would like to call the ‘Hank-ccine’”.

Since contracting the virus, the two have fully recovered.
