#Covid-19: P!nk and three-year-old son 'really sick' with coronavirus
"I'm hoping we are out of the woods but this thing is a rollercoaster."
P!nk and her three-year-old son were "really sick" with coronavirus, according to the singer.
The performer said that she and son Jameson had both contracted the virus two weeks ago and that he had had "the worst of it."
During an Instagram Live over the weekend, P!nk said that she and her son were feeling "better than the were" but that was she was concerned about her son's health going forward.
"I've kept a journal of [Jameson's] symptoms for the past three weeks and mine as well," she said.
"He still, three weeks later, has a 100 temperature. It's been a rollercoaster for both of us.

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.❤️
P!nk, who has suffered from asthma for her entire life, said that although she has been "promised" that children "will be OK" during the pandemic, she is still very concerned about the virus's impact.
She added that her son had had a temperature for three weeks since testing positive for Covid-19.
"In the beginning, all we were hearing was 'If you're young, this is 65 and older, all of the kids are fine,'" she said.
"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 he has 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."
P!nk tested positive for coronavirus two weeks ago. She is no longer carrying the virus.
