As the scientists try to find a cure for coronavirus that has killed thousands across the globe, actor Daniel Dae Kim has offered help to find a vaccine against the disease.
The 51-year old actor made the pledge after he tested positive for the disease after traveling home to Hawaii. He had returned home after filming on his TV show 'New Amsterdam'.
Taking to Instagram, the actor posted a video message in which he said, "With any luck, I will have actually built up an immunity to this virus when all of this is said and done. So I may not actually need the vaccine when it comes out.
"I hope it does soon though, and I will gladly contribute in any way I can, including donating antibodies in the pursuit of finding a vaccine for everyone" the actor said who is currently in self-isolation.
The novel coronavirus (COVID-19) had first emerged in China earlier this year before spreading across the globe, killing and infecting thousands of people.
The pandemic has caused worldwide disruptions, postponements, and cancellations.
