American singer-songwriter, Alecia Beth Moore, known professionally as Pink, revealed she and her little son were diagnosed with COVID-19 after contracting the novel coronavirus and that now they have recovered.
The singer wrote in an Instagram post that she’s grateful to have had access to testing facilities and that she and her son tested positive two weeks ago.
“Two weeks ago my three-year-old son, Jameson, and I were showing symptoms of COVID-19. 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. Just a few days ago we were re-tested and are now thankfully negative.”
Talking about the lack of testing facilities in the US, Pink added: “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 in honor of my mother, Judy Moore, donated $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia, where her mother worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center.
And additionally, donate $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund.”
In conclusion, She wrapped her post with a thank you note to health officials, who are in the frontline of the battle against coronavirus: “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.”
