Billionaire Elon Musk said in a tweet on Saturday that he had a moderate case of Kovid-19, citing “different results from different labs” despite doubts about the accuracy of the televisions.
He did not mention the results from the PCR tests, which are usually performed in labs and are more accurate than quick tests.
Said Musk, chief executive officer of Tesla Inc. and Space Exploration Technologies Corporation. He revealed on Twitter on Friday that he had received uncontrollable results from the corona virus test through Becton, Dickinson and the company’s rapid antigen test.
The 49-year-old Muscovite has raised suspicions about Kovid-19, questioning the virality of the disease and claiming the death toll was exorbitant. He said in a tweet on Saturday that the corona virus is a kind of common cold. The disease affects more than 10.8 million people in the US. On Friday, 190,059 cases were reported and 245,000 people died.
In March, Musk predicted that there would be new cases in the U.S. in April and that the shutdown of production at Tesla’s auto plant in Fremont, California, had left no stone unturned.
Rapid tests are widely used in the fight against Covid-19, but these tests are known to be less accurate than the more common, gold-standard polymerase chain reaction or PCR tests. – Bloomberg
