Cardi B takes stance on coronavirus testing: ‘I said what I said’

Cardi B and DJ iMarkkeyz have both confirmed that all the proceeds from the song, "Coronavirus," will go towards coronavirus relief efforts.

Cardi B is never shy about speaking her mind and as the coronavirus continues to keep people at home as they attempt to "flatten the curve," she's speaking out about access to tests.

Clad in a face mask, the metro Atlanta resident took to Instagram Tuesday to discuss the "confusion" over testing for the new virus, which causes the disease COVID-19.

Cardi B, whose real name is Belcalis Marlenis Almanzar, said it causes confusion when “45” — meaning President Donald Trump — tells people who are not exhibiting symptoms not to get tested for the coronavirus because there are not enough of the tests. She said it’s puzzling when asymptomatic celebrities are able to get tested.

“If a celebrity is saying, ‘Hey, listen. I don't have no symptoms. I'm feeling good. I'm feeling healthy. I don't feel like nothing, but I went and got tested and I'm positive for the coronavirus,’ that cause confusion.”

She added that “the general public, people that work regular jobs, people that get regular paychecks, the middle class, the poor ... they're not getting celebrities.”

The "Press" performer also took issue with everyday people who test positive for the coronavirus being sent home to self-quarantine. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends staying away from others and remaining at home for 14 days.

“Where do they think they sending people home to?” Cardi B asked, adding that not everyone has “the luxury” to go to a big house and “just stay away from people.” She said that “a lot of people” live in small apartments “with multiple people.”
