Look I will be the first to admit Elon Musk, the CEO of Tesla, is a loose cannon. But he recently tweeted that he had four tests for COVID using the same equipment on the same day and got two negatives and two positives.
He had the tests done because he was experiencing symptoms of a minor cold.
So does he have COVID or doesn’t he?
The Daily Wire writes:
Elon Musk suspects something strange is brewing with the current spate of COVID tests. According to the eccentric billionaire, he took a test four times in one day and got two different results.
“Something extremely bogus is going on. Was tested for covid four times today. Two tests came back negative, two came back positive. Same machine, same test, same nurse. Rapid antigen test from BD,” Musk tweeted on Thursday.
Regarding whether false positives could be contributing to the major spike in cases, Musk said, “If it’s happening to me, it’s happening to others. I’m getting PCR tests from separate labs. Results will take about 24 hours.”
This is not the first time we have seen this happening. Back in August, President Donald Trump was planning to visit Ohio. He was scheduled to meet Gov. Mike DeWine. As part of this protocol, DeWine needed to be tested for COVID. Though he showed no symptoms he tested positive.
But then a strange thing happened, they retested the Governor, and on the second test DeWine tested negative. Why would you go for a second test? You would only do this if you weren’t a 100% confident in the testing. READ: UPDATE: Ohio Governor Mike DeWine Tests Negative for CoVID After Initially Testing Positive
Then in September, 13 members of the University of Arizona tested positive for COVID. So what did the football officials do? Did they tell the 13 players they couldn’t play? No, they retested them and in the second test only two tested positive. Based on these percentages, they should have retested the two who tested positive. But the bigger question is why did they do a retest??? READ: University says false positive inflated COVID numbers 600% among group of athletes
