Pink Had Coronavirus, But Has Recovered; Will Donate $1 Million to Charity

Pink has announced that she tested positive for coronavirus two weeks ago, but thankfully she has recovered and no longer has the virus.

The 40-year-old singer says that she will be donating $500,000 to two different causes to help in the fight against the virus, totaling to a full $1 million donation.

“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 continued to do so for the last two weeks following the instruction of our doctor,” Pink wrote in a statement on Twitter.

Pink and her husband Carey Hart are parents to two kids – Willow, 8, and Jameson, 3.

“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,” Pink continued. “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,” she said. “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.”

Pink joins a growing list of celebrities who have come forward with their coronavirus diagnoses.
