P!NK announced on her socials that the tests returned a positive diagnosis for coronavirus, but just two weeks later they were both retested and officially are both now negative.

She took the opportunity to take aim at the US Government for their handling of the global pandemic.

Off the back of the news, the singer-songwriter announced she is donating $1 million USD to help fight coronavirus.

She’s giving $500K to the Los Angeles Mayor’s emergency fund and another $500,000 to the Philadelphia’s Temple University Emergency Fund in honour of her mother who worked there for 18 years.
