Holder of several Grammy awards, singer Pink confirmed that she had tested positive for coronavirus two weeks ago. She has recovered from it and denounces the “failure” of the American government which does not make screening accessible to everyone across the country, which remains the most affected in the world by the pandemic.
In a message posted on Twitter, the famous American singer Pink announced that two weeks ago she and her three-year-old son had presented with Covid-19 symptoms.
She had been able to access screening tests through a primary health care doctor. The test immediately showed that she was contaminated.
At that time she was already in confinement with her family, which she continued to do. A new test made a few days ago showed that the singer had recovered.
“It is an absolute farce and a failure of our government not to make screening more accessible,” she said. “This disease is serious and real. “People need to know that the disease affects young and old, good and bad, the rich and the poor, and we need to make testing free and more widely available.”
She also called on her subscribers to stay home.
Pink announced the donation of $ 1,000,000 to Temple University Hospital in Philadelphia and the COVID-19 Crisis Fund in Los Angeles to support caregivers.
