American singer, actress, model, songwriter Pink is another celebrity to test positive for coronavirus. The star took to Instagram and Twitter and wrote that two weeks ago she and her three-year-old son, Jameson, were showing symptoms of COVID-19. Fortunately, the primary care physician had access to tests and she had tested positive. Her family was sheltering at home and continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of their doctor. Just a few days ago, they were re-tested and thankfully tested negative.
The actress also expressed the failure of the government to make testing kits accessible. She said the virus doesn’t discriminate and hence the testing should be more widely accessible. To help the process, the 40-year-old announced that she is making a sizable donation of $1 million to support health care workers on the frontlines. She also urged everybody to stay home and be safe and support the healthcare staff in every means possible. Well, we are relieved to know that the singer has recovered.

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. 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.❤️
