Singer Pink says she had COVID-19 coronavirus
The well-renowned American singer Pink has announced that she tested positive for the deadly COVID-19 disease.
The singer revealed her health condition through a recent post on Instagram.
In her post, the American celebrity recounted that they were at their home when she along with her daughter have started experiencing a slew of the symptoms of the said disease, around two weeks ago. They are fortunate that their primary care physician had access to COVID-19 tests. She was then tested positive for the said disease.
As a result, they extended their home quarantine for two weeks. And, not so long ago, she and her daughter re-tested and turned to be negative for the disease.
In addition, she said that the U.S. government should make the testing for COVID-19 widely accessible across the country.
She also encouraged the general public to take this disease seriously as it could affect anyone, regardless of age, health condition, and status in the community.
She also said she appreciates so much the frontliners for continuously doing their job in the midst of this pandemic. In fact, to show her love for frontliners, she donated money with the amount of $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia. This is in honor of her mother.
On top of this donation, she said she is going to donate another $500,000 to the Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund of the City of Los Angeles Mayor.
For those who do not know, the singer is behind a wide array of popular songs, such as What About Us, Just Give Me A Reason, as well as True Love.
In the meantime, actor Tom Hanks, as well as her wife Rita Wilson, was reported to have recovered from COVID-19. The two were in Australia when they tested positive for the disease.
The World Health Organization has tagged this disease as a pandemic as it has already affected different parts of the globe.
