‘It Got Really, Really Scary’: Pink Opens Up About Coronavirus Battle Revealing Three-Year-Old Son Is Still Recovering

The US singer admitted she had "never prayed more in my life" as she and her son fought the virus.

Pink has revealed that she and her three-year-old son are still recovering after testing positive for Covid-19.

Last week, the US singer and her son, Jameson, tested positive for the virus and over the weekend, she opened up about their ordeal during an Instagram Live.

Revealing that although she and her son are feeling “better than [they] were,” they are still not fully recovered.

“I’m hoping we are out of the woods but this thing is a rollercoaster,” she explained. “Just when you think you are better, something else happens.”

The 40-year-old star said that although they “have [both] been really, really sick,” Jameson “has had the worst of it.”

She said: “I’ve kept a journal of [Jameson’s] symptoms for the past three weeks and mine as well. He still, three weeks later, has a 100 temperature. It’s been a rollercoaster for both of us.

“Last week I was on nebulisers. I’ve had asthma really bad, had it for my whole life. It got really, really scary, I’m not gonna lie.

“In the beginning, all we were hearing was ’If you’re young, this is 65 and older, all of the kids are fine’.

“Yes I have asthma, but Jameson, he’s three, he’s perfectly fine. We live in the country, right. The worst thing that attacks us here is pollen or a mountain lion.

“But [Jameson has] been really, really sick and it’s scary. He’s been up and down and I’ve been on nebulisers for the first time in 30 years and that’s been really scary for me.”

Pink admitted that “there were many nights when I’ve cried and I’ve never prayed more in my life.”

She added: “It’s funny, but at one point, I thought they promised us our kids would be okay. It’s not guaranteed. There is no one that is safe from this.”

The singer said that although her and Jameson have tested positive for the illness, her husband Carey Hart and eight-year-old daughter Willow “have been perfectly fine”.

On Friday, Pink took to Instagram to tell fans she had been “re-tested” and no longer has the virus.

She told her 7.7million followers: “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.”

Taking a shot at Trump’s government, she added: “It is an absolute travesty and failure of our government to not make testing more widely accessible. This illness is serious and real.”

In the post, the So What singer also revealed she was donating a million dollars (£815,000) to emergency coronavirus funds. 

Five hundred thousand dollars (£407,000) would go to the Temple University Hospital Emergency Fund in Philadelphia and the City of Los Angeles Mayor’s Emergency Covid-19 crisis fund would receive the same amount.

It is not the first time Pink has responded to a crisis in a charitable way. 

Earlier this year, she donated half a million US dollars to local fire services in Australia amid the country’s wildfire crisis.
