Pink reveals her 'terrifying' battle against Coronavirus

Pink has revealed how she struggled to breathe as she battled Coronavirus for weeks. 

During an interview on The Ellen Degeneres Show, the star shared the harrowing details of her illness and how she and her three-year-old son, Jameson, struggled to recover after weeks of illness. 

The singer told Ellen that her son Jameson first became sick in mid-March, just as schools started to shut down.

Her son fell ill but because his symptoms "were all over the place", the doctor just told them to stay at home.  

Little Jameson suffered a fever on and off, stomach pains, diarrhoea, chest pains, a sore throat, and headaches.

Then as the What About Us singer started feeling unwell, she still had no idea it might be Covid-19. She said her symptoms included nausea, a sore throat, and breathing problems.

 "I never had what they tell you to look for," she explains.

"At a certain point around March 18, March 19, March 20, when his fever was staying and going up. I woke up in the middle of the night and couldn't breathe."

As an asthmatic, Pink said she started panicking.

“It was terrifying,” she admitted.

“I couldn’t function without (my inhaler) and that’s when I started to get really scared,” she said.

As the family could only only get access one test, Pink tested herself to confirm she was positive for coronavirus.

“This is the scariest thing I’ve ever, ever been through in my whole life,” she said getting tearful about her son vomiting while having chest pains.

“There’s nothing you can do. You just ride it out, and we started to get better … slowly, slowly, slowly.”.

“It really is just a roller coaster... there’s no rhyme or reason to this,” she said. “At one point I was crying, praying... I thought they told us our kids were going to be OK.”

Pink and Jameson are now recovering well from the virus and the generous singer has donated more than a $1million to coronavirus relief funds.
