Responding to a Twitter user who asked if he had the disease, Musk confirmed that although he had “very different results” from multiple tests, he was still experiencing a “moderate case” of COVID-19.

uerujabidi I get very different results from different labs, but for the most part I have a moderate case. My symptoms are the minor cold, which is not surprising, because the coronavirus is a kind of cold.

Musk’s entry came after he was told Friday morning that COVID-19 had been tested “four times” and had different results.

Something very fake is going on. Tested for Kovid four times today. Two tests came back negative and two came back positive. Same machine, same test, same nurse. Rapid antigen testing from BD.
