Pink Speaks Out About Her COVID-19 Experience
Global music sensation Pink has spoken out about her COVID-19 experience. The star and her son Jameson are recovering from the deadly virus. The singer described her illness on social media as “serious and real.” She said it affects everyone. The “young and old, healthy and unhealthy, rich and poor.”
Pink Tested Positive for COVID-19
In a pair of tweets, she said she and her three-year-old son were displaying symptoms two weeks ago. Both tested positive after accessing tests through a primary care physician. Her family had already been sheltering at home and continued to do so. The star said they have now been tested again “just a few days ago,” and were negative.
Pink Calls for Free Widespread Testing
The Grammy Award-winning artist behind eight studio albums and hits like “Get the Party Started,” “What About Us,” “Raise Your Glass” and “Just Give Me a Reason” has since called for free and widespread testing.
“It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. 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.”
Pink is donating $ 1 million to relief funds
Pink’s COVID-19 experience has had a significant impact on her and her family. She announced she’s donating $1 million across two coronavirus-related relief funds. $500,000 each going to the Temple University Hospital Fund in Philadelphia and the COVID-19 response fund run by the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles.
Please Stay At Home
Pink has called health care workers “heroes” and ended her post with an appeal to the public.
“These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home,” she wrote. “Please. Stay. Home.”
