Singer Pink and her 3-year-old son tested positive for COVID -19

Ever since the outbreak of the fatal COVID -19 took over the world, we have been hearing cases of eminent celebrities testing positive for the virus. From Tom Hanks to Idris Elba, the news of these stars testing positive has left the common man in panic mode. The latest to break the news of catching the virus is American pop star Pink.

Pink took to social media to reveal that she and her son, Jameson, were showing symptoms two weeks ago. After getting tested by their general physician, they found out that they both were positive. The singer wrote, “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. 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.”

She further added that it disheartens her that these tests are not available for the masses and wrote, “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.”

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. 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.❤ï¸Â
