Pink’s husband Carey Hart reveals just how sick his wife and son became after contracting COVID-19: ‘It totally attacked her lungs and her chest’
Carey Hart has shed light on just how sick both his wife Pink and son Jameson became after contracting COVID-19.
Though the family took necessary precautions to stay safe from the virus, Pink and her three-year-old son still became infected.
‘It was intense,’ Carey said on SiriusXM’s The Jason Ellis Show. ‘They both got extremely sick. My son probably got the worst of the two of them, which kind of debunked the whole theory that this only hit old people.’

‘My wife got it pretty bad as well. She has pre-existing, you know she has asthma. It totally attacked her lungs and her chest, and she was having a hard time breathing.’
While the family had been ‘locked down’ at home for nearly all of March, things took a turn for the worse a few days after Carey returned from Daytona, Florida in the middle of the month.
‘I came home, I wasn’t showing any symptoms. So we were going this route that most people are in that is, “I don’t want to get this” and we are going into full lockdown.’
‘The symptoms started to kick up…. we probably stayed home for another 10 days and then my son took a turn for the worse.’

Sadly, the youngster battled an extremely high temperature for several weeks.
‘He’d have extremely high body temperature, I mean he was up around 102, 103, for a solid two, going on three weeks straight. The kid was in the bath four or five times a day trying to break his temperature.’
‘And then, Alecia was progressively getting worse. So finally we made the decision to head down to our little place in L.A. to be closer to our pediatrician and my wife’s doctor. So we ended up down in L.A. for five days and then once their symptoms started to break and get behind us, we came back home.’

Pink was the only one who was actually tested for the virus, but Carey is operating under the assumption the entire family has contracted it, even though they are not showing any symptoms.
‘I have zero symptoms, my daughter has zero symptoms. Unfortunately, we only had access to a test for my wife… not that I don’t really feel we needed more because I figure, the four of us on top of each other for a couple of weeks at this point, if one of us has it, all of us has it.
‘You have to kind of assume that. We just kind of took the lead on my wife’s test.’
Fortunately, Pink and her son eventually tested negative from the virus.
‘Two weeks ago my three-year old son, Jameson, and I are were showing symptoms of COVID-19,’ she wrote on Instagram. ‘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.’
