Singer Pink reveals how she and her 3 year old son recovered from COVID-19

In an exclusive interview, P!nk had a candid conversation with Ellen about what it’s been like since both she and her 3-year-old son Jameson contracted COVID-19, and how it’s the scariest thing she’s been through in her life.

The star talked about symptoms they had and also symptoms that she didn’t have.

Pink is sharing the story of her and her son to raise awareness that it really can happen to anybody urging people to take the situation seriously and continue to have hope for the future.

People may be sick with the virus for 1 to 14 days before developing symptoms. The most common symptoms of coronavirus disease (COVID-19) are fever, tiredness, and dry cough. Most people (about 80%) recover from the disease without needing special treatment.
More rarely, the disease can be serious and even fatal. Older people, and people with other medical conditions (such as asthma, diabetes, or heart disease), may be more vulnerable to becoming severely ill.
You can protect yourself and help prevent spreading the virus to others if you:
Wash your hands regularly for 20 seconds, with soap and water or alcohol-based hand rub
Cover your nose and mouth with a disposable tissue or flexed elbow when you cough or sneeze
Avoid close contact (1 meter or 3 feet) with people who are unwell
Stay home and self-isolate from others in the household if you feel unwell
Don’t – Touch your eyes, nose, or mouth if your hands are not clean
People may experience the following symptoms, however
  • cough
  • fever
  • tiredness
  • difficulty breathing (severe cases)

Be mindful that symptoms can vary from child to child. Some children might not get any symptoms at all, and other children might get mild symptoms.

The incubation period for coronavirus (COVID-19) can be 1-14 days. This means the virus can infect people up to 14 days before symptoms start to appear.
