American singer Pink shares COVID-19 experience; donates $1 million to fight virus

American singer and songwriter Alecia Beth Moore, who goes by the stage name Pink, has taken to her Instagram account to share her COVID-19 experience.

According to the singer, she, alongside her three years old son had symptoms of coronavirus and she tested positive to coronavirus. Although both mother and child have now tested negative, the experience wasn’t a good one.

In a statement released on Instagram, the singer decries the inability of the US government to make testing widely available. She also announces two donations of $500,000 each to Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia where her mother, Judy Moore, worked for 18 years and to the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund.

She also thanks health workers for their dedication to saving lives.

Read the full post below:

Two weeks ago my three-year-old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19, the singer writes on her Instagram page. “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” the post continues.

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.”
