Elon Musk says he tested both positive and negative twice for COVID-19 in one day and claims ‘something extremely bogus’ is happening

Elon Musk has claimed he took four coronavirus tests in a day, two coming back positive and two negative, and declared ‘something extremely bogus is going on.’ 

The Tesla boss, who has previously described lockdown measures as ‘fascist,’ tweeted Thursday: ‘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 49-year-old may have been referring to Becton Dickinson’s Veritor Plus system, a 15-minute rapid antigen test. BD is a major supplier of tests to the US government.

The FDA, which gave emergency authorisation to the BD test, says any negative result should be verified by molecular testing – the most accurate form. 

Musk later revealed he was suffering ‘typical cold’ symptoms and warned of the contradictory results: ‘If it’s happening to me, it’s happening to others’.
