Singer Pink announced on Saturday that she, too, has tested coronavirus positive. Nevertheless, a re-test conducted a few days ago yielded disappointing results. The 40-year-old singer took Instagram to explain the procedure that she underwent when she tested positive.
“Two weeks ago my three-year-old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive,” The ‘Try’ singer also said that despite her doctors ‘advice and remaining at home, when re-tested, her results showed negative.
Furthermore, the musician called on the government to claim it as a “real travesty and failure” not to make tests more available.”This illness is serious and real. People need to know that the illness affects the young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor, and we must make testing free and more widely accessible to protect our children, our families, our friends, and our communities,”
“In an effort to support the healthcare professionals who are battling on the frontlines every day, I am donating $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center,” she said.
The ‘Sober’ singer also confirmed that she is donating $1 million to support health care professionals and front- responders for their daily efforts in the fight against coronavirus.
Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund. THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones. You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home,” Pink concluded.
The COVID-19 pandemic has ravaged nearly the entire globe and claimed the lives of more than 45,000 people according to WHO.
