Pink, one of the most famous names in the pop music industry, has recently revealed that she tested positive for COVID-19 after experiencing symptoms.
The announcement was made through the singer's official Instagram page, where she also said that her son, 3-year-old Jameson, also showed signs of the disease.

NOT A THREAT ANYMORE
According to Pink, she's no longer a carrier of the virus, having been re-tested after sheltering at home for two weeks and following the advice of a primary care physician.
In the post, which was accompanied by a photo of the 40-year-old star with Jameson at a pumpkin patch, she didn't share whether the child also tested positive.
BASHING THE SYSTEM
However, despite being now free of the illness, Pink didn't refrain from saying that being tested is still considered a privilege and it is a shame that not everyone can afford it.
She thanked healthcare professionals around the world for all their hard work

The singer went on to say that it is a travesty and a failure that the American government still hasn't made testing more widely accessible, adding that people need to know how that it can affect everyone.
Pink didn't pull any punches and claimed that making testing free would allow everyone to be protected, from children, families and friends to entire communities.
DOING HER PART
As a way to show her support for the healthcare professionals who put their lives in danger by battling the disease on a daily basis, Pink revealed that she would be making two donations.
The "So What" singer wrote that she is going to donate $500,000 to City of Los Angeles Mayor's Emergency COVID-19 Crisis Fund and another $500,000 to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund.
The latter donation will be made in honor of Judy Moore, her mother, who was an employee at the Cardiomyopathy and Heart Transplant Center for 18 years.
She also thanked healthcare professionals around the world for all their hard work during these difficult times, describing them as heroes.
