Pink revealed on Friday that she tested positive for the coronavirus but has since made somewhat of a recovery.

The Raise Your Glass singer said, two weeks ago, she and her three-year-old son, Jameson, had been experiencing symptoms of Covid-19 and decided to get tested.

She didn't share much else, but commented on the lack of testing before revealing she was donating $1 million (R19 million) to fighting Covid-19.

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. 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.??

The 40-year-old recently took to Instagram Live though, to share her "rollercoaster" experience, reports People.

The Beautiful Trauma artist shared with friend and author Jen Pastiloff that she and her son "have been really, really sick" and Jameson "has had the worst of it".

"There were many nights when I've cried, and I've never prayed more in my life," she said. "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."

Updating fans she said, "We're better than we were. Last week I was on nebulizers. 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 mountain lion. But he's been really, really sick and it's scary. He's been up and down, and I've been on nebulizers for the first time in 30 years, and that's been really scary for me."

The mother-of-two added, "I'm hoping we are out of the woods, but this thing is a rollercoaster. Just when you think you are better, something else happens."
