American Singer P!nk Tested Positive For COVID-19, Donated $1 Million After Recovery

NEW DELHI: The Grammy Award Winner Singer P!nk or Alecia Beth Moore as known as originally has revealed in a post on Saturday that she was tested positive for the novel coronavirus two weeks ago along with her 3-year-old son, Jameson. The 40-year-old singer while sharing her experience told us that she and her family were already in-home quarantine. Two weeks ago, she developed symptoms of coronavirus and said she was lucky enough as her primary care physician had access to the tests. She also said that they're now fully recovered and we're treated at home only under the guidance of her physician. She wrote, "Two weeks ago my three-year-old son, Jameson, and I was 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."

Revealing the harsh reality of the health facility in the state and urging it to make it free to make it widely accessible, P!nk further 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.

In her effort to show some support to the health sector, she announced a donation of $500,000 to the relief funds of Temple University Hospital of Philadelphia in honour of her mother, Judy Moore who had almost served there for 2 decades. Not only this, she has also announced a donation of $500,000 to the state relief funds.

"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 honour 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", she wrote.

At the end of her post, she thanked all the medical professionals working in the frontline to help the whole world and requested everyone to stay at home for the next 2 crucial weeks.

Here's the aforementioned post that P!nk posted with her adorable son.
