Elon Musk tests positive and negative for SARS-CoV-2

New thread, so as to not clog up the Tesla thread with this news.

Everyone, please remain calm.

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.
< Hmmmm.... Are you feeling any symptoms?
Elon Musk (@elonmusk)11/13/20, 12:52 AM
Symptoms of a typical cold. Nothing unusual so far.
< Could this be why we’ve been seeing such a major spike?
Elon Musk (@elonmusk)11/13/20, 12:50 AM
 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.

<Revenues from tests are likely not bogus & very consistent

Breaking — Elon Musk Tests Positive For SARS-CoV-2

Elon Musk (@elonmusk)11/13/20, 6:16 AM
@cleantechnica Technically, I tested positive, then negative twice, then positive again, so “Elon Musk Tests Negative for Covid” is an equally correct title. The “rapid antigen test” from BD seems to be about as useful as a flipping a coin.

< Which symptoms did you have?
Elon Musk (@elonmusk)11/13/20, 6:23 AM
Mild sniffles & cough & slight fever past few days. Right now, no symptoms, although I did take NyQuil.

Pranay Pathole:
An individual antibody test is unreliable on it's own because they were developed extremely quickly in order to have some way to detect covid at all ...
Pranay Pathole:
Some of the antibody rapid tests (now no longer manufactured) were literally just over 50% accuracy of positive results - meaning half the time, when you test positive, it might actually still be negative. That's why @elonmusk got tested 4 different times
People who say it cannot be done should not interrupt those who are doing it.
