The president and co-founder of Tesla, Elon Musk, has called into question the reliability of the tests to detect COVID-19 after two tests were positive while two were negative on the same day.
The opinion he shared on his Twitter account set social networks on fire.
The billionaire wrote that “something extremely fraudulent is happening” in relation to the evidence.
“I have had the COVID test four times today. Two tests were negative and two were positive. Same machine, same test, same nurse. Rapid BD antigen test (Becton Dickinson) ”, he reported.
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.

The Tesla president mentioned that he is awaiting test results due to symptoms such as fever, chills, headache, muscle aches, fatigue, cough, sneezing, runny nose and nasal congestion.
Out of the confusion, Musk said he will undergo a PCR test to find out if he is infected once and for all. The results of these tests tend to take longer than the rest. Actually, about 24 hours.
The news has resonated internationally because the tycoon has spoken out against the closures in certain jurisdictions in the United States. Among them, the closure of California where the company’s main manufacturer is located. He even branded the measure as “fascist” but not “democratic” because it affected more than 100,000 employees.
