Rihanna’s Father Recovering From Coronavirus, Singer Sent Him A Ventilator
Over the past few weeks, Rihanna has been on the charitable front lines helping to curb the coronavirus. Her Clara Lionel foundation donated $5 million to coronavirus relief as well as masks and ventilators and most recently she donated $2.1m to the Mayor’s Fund for Los Angeles to assist victims of domestic violence affected by the mandatory lockdown.
Now, unfortunately, COVID-19 is hitting close to home.
Rihanna’s father Ronald Fenty is on the mend after he being diagnosed with coronavirus. The Bajan patriarch told The Sun that he feared for his life but his celebrity daughter was there for him every step of the way.
“My daughter Robyn was checking in on me every day,” he said. “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.”
Ronald told the publication that Rih purchased him a ventilator and sent it to him in Barbados but luckily he didn’t have to use it. His symptoms included heavy fevers and he spent 14 days in insolation at the island’s Paragon Isolation Center.
“I got a fever up inside of my nose. I had a fever across my lips. It was just a lot of fever,” he said. “I feared the worst.”
Barbados coronavirus cases are far less than the United States. The Sun reports that to date only three people have died. In the U.S. the death toll is at 16,000. In New York alone, Governor Andrew Cuomo announced that 799 New Yorkers died of the virus this week, bringing the state’s cumulative death toll to 7,067.
