Pink has shared in a new message that she had tested positive two weeks ago for coronavirus, and has since recovered. The GRAMMY-winning singer was showing symptoms of COVID-19 along with her 3-year-old son Jameson, and they were both able to get tested.
"Fortunately, our primary care physician had access to tests and I tested positive. My family was already sheltering at home and we continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor," she wrote beside a picture of the two together. "Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative."
Pink went on to criticize our government for not making testing more available, after weeks of coronavirus concern around the world, calling it an "absolute travesty and failure."
"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."
The Doylestown, PA native has donated $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund, in Philadelphia, in honor of her mother who worked there for 18 years, and another $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund, continuing to aid the relief efforts across the country.
"THANK YOU to all of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones," she concluded. "You are our heroes! These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home."
