Rihanna sent ventilator for father after he tested positive for Covid-19

Singer Rihanna's father Ronald Fenty tested positive for coronavirus in his home country, Barbados, but has now beat COVID-19 with the superstar's help.

"My daughter Robyn was checking in on me every day. I thought I was going to die to be honest. I have to say, I love you so much, Robyn. She did so much for me. I appreciate everything she has done," Rihanna's father recently shared with The Sun.

The 32-year-old singer sent a ventilator to his Caribbean home and gave him "more than enough" to battle the illness that left him feeling weak and frightened for his life.

"I got a fever up inside my nose. I had a fever across my lips. It was just a lot of fever," Fenty revealed. "I feared the worst. I thought I was going to die, honestly," he added. Rihanna's father was quarantined for two weeks at the Paragon Isolation Center, after which he was declared virus-free. He is now taking rest at his St. James home.

Fenty asked the public to stay at home and said, "I want everybody to stay home. This is a serious situation. More serious than people realise. Please stay home."

Rihanna is also using her time and money to help those globally affected by Covid-19, and she has donated USD 5 million to the cause via her Clara Lionel Foundation. She and Jay-Z also teamed up to donate USD 1 million each to those affected in Los Angeles and New York. Twitter boss Jack Dorsey is also collaborating with Rihanna to help domestic abuse survivors who may have been displaced during the novel coronavirus outbreak.
