Beyoncé Paid For An Entire Hospital Wing's COVID-19 Treatments: Report

In case you needed another reason to love Beyoncé, we found another: Queen Bey recently paid for an entire hospital wing's coronavirus treatments.

According to Love B. Scott, the "Savage" singer's mom, Tina Knowles-Lawson, recently revealed her daughter's generous gift while clapping back at an Internet troll on Instagram.

"Please you weak-minded sheep that are coming on my page saying my family would get good [COVID] treatment. Yes they would which is why I've been trying to help set up testing in different cities, get supplies to different cities, and that my daughter paid for a wing of the hospital for COVID treatment for everyday people that don't have access that we have," Miss Tina replied, per a screenshot, obtained by Love B. Scott, of the reported clapback.

She continued, "I wear a mask and I try to educate people every day and have assisted people on getting care. don't compare us. Don't come on this page coming for me and mine."

Back in May, Miss Tina teamed up with her daughter's foundation BEYGOOD to provide coronavirus relief to the Houston area. The native Texans announced the #IDIDMYPART campaign to encourage black communities to prioritize health amidst the COVID-19 pandemic by providing 1,000 test kits, face masks, gloves, essential vitamins and household supplies to citizens of Houston over Mother's Day weekend.

"Recognizing that African American communities have an escalated rate of infections and fatalities, Ms. Knowles Lawson is pleading to Houston residents to know their status in an urgent appeal to stop the spread of the coronavirus," read BeyGOOD's press release. "The test is free and administered under safe conditions as participants will never have to exit their vehicles."

Participants also received a grocery gift card from BeyGOOD as well as a voucher for a hot meal to two local favorite restaurants.

"The virus is wreaking havoc on the Black community so we need a movement to prioritize our health," Miss Tina said in a statement at the time, citing a report from the CDC that as of April 23, 33.7% of COVID patients were African American, even though African Americans comprise 13% of US population. And as per the CDC, as of mid-April, roughly 33% of all fatalities are African American.

"We are all in this together. But we have to look at what is happening in our Black and Brown communities and how they are being decimated by COVID-19," she continued. "It is critical that we stay vigilant with social distancing, wearing a mask, and most of all getting tested. If you don't get tested then you don't know if you are a carrier of the virus. Being asymptomatic is how you infect your entire household and those around you, the very people you love. We have got to go to these free testing facilities and find out our status."
