In a recent Instagram post, Pink shared that she has made a full recovery after having tested positive for COVID-19.
"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."
Calling the coronavirus "serious and real," she appealed for testing to be free and more widely accessible in order to "protect our children, our families, our friends and our communities."
Pink plans to donate a total of $1 million to support the efforts of healthcare professionals and frontliners. $500,000 will go to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia in honor of her mother, "who worked there for 18 years in the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center." $500,000 will go to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund.
To end her message, the singer asked that everyone stay home to help prevent the spread of the virus. She also shared her heartfelt thank you to "our heroes": "All of our healthcare professionals and everyone in the world who are working so hard to protect our loved ones."
