CENTER MORICHES, Long Island — A Long Island man has recovered from coronavirus and is now doing his part to help battle the pandemic.

Christopher Yackel, of Center Moriches, spoke with PIX11 a few weeks ago after he first tested positive for COVID-19.

Now recovered, he chatted with PIX11’s Dan Mannarino about donating his plasma through Mount Sinai and the New York Blood Center to help others battle the virus.
