Singer Pink has donated $1 million to help fight the coronavirus pandemic, after revealing that she and her 3-year old son have both tested positive for the virus. “Two weeks ago my three-year-old son, Jameson, and I were showing symptoms of COVID-19,” Pink shared on social media. “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 told fans. “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,” Pink tweeted.
“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,” Pink told fans of the hospital where her mother, Judy, worked for 18 years.
“Additionally, I am donating $500,000 to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund,” Pink added.
“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!” Pink tweeted, before pleading, “These next two weeks are crucial: please stay home. Please. Stay. Home.”
