P!nk announced on Instagram today that she and her 3-year-old son, Jameson, both tested positive for Coronavirus.
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.❤️
After P!nk made the announcement, she did an Instagram Live chat with author Jen Pastiloff.
The singer said she battled the virus for three weeks while her toddler struggled to overcome the illness for nearly a month.
P!nk, who suffers from asthma, revealed she was on a nebulizer for the first time in 30 years. In describing her bout with Covid-19, she said, “…just when you think it is over, it comes back for one last round.”
Detailing her son’s symptoms, the “You Make Me Sick,” singer said he experienced a lingering fever, vomiting, diarrhea, and eventually constipation.
Besides worrying about her kids amidst the global pandemic, P!nk is also concerned for her parents. Her mother has lung issues and her dad is going through his second round of chemotherapy.
As of now, her daughter Willow and husband Carey Hart have not shown any Coronavirus symptoms.
P!nk revealed her hubby’s best tip for dealing with Covid-19 was a drink of Whiskey–wittily noting that while liquor might not cure the disease, it will make be quarantined with your family more tolerable.
