Tesla/SpaceX CEO Elon Reeve Musk just told the world via his Twitter account that he tested both positive and negative for COVID-19 in a single day. He feels that something really bogus is going on with this entire Coronavirus pandemic episode.
Musk went for 4 tests in a single day yesterday after symptoms of the typical cold. 2 of the tests came positive for COVID and 2 tests resulted in negative despite the same hospital, nurse, same machine, and the same test.
This became the reason for him to express his views on Twitter:
Musk believes that there is something bigger happening behind the scenes — hospitals and testing facilities are making some serious money with excessive testing.
Musk also agreed to a follower saying this amount of false positives in test results can be the reason for the recent COVID-19 spike, he 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.
He also pointed out at more symptoms in another tweet:
Historically, Musk has been vocal on COVID-19 and hasn’t been a big supporter of government policies in regard to the lockdowns during the first wave of the virus.
Earlier this year, when the Tesla Fremont factory was shut down by the orders of the local county government. Elon Musk even went to the court of law against the Alameda County for re-opening the factory the Tesla factory with strict SOPs in place.
However, in the most difficult times in the early COVID-19 wave, he donated 1,000 ventilators to the California government and hospitals in other states. Musk imported these ventilators to the United States solely on the basis of his contacts in China.
Let’s wait for Elon Musk’s other PCR test results which might come anytime today or tomorrow. The TSLA share price will definitely see effects of Musk’s runny nose as soon as the markets open this morning.
