Elon Musk cla!ms he tested neg-ative and positive for the Covid-19on the same day. In a tweet, the SpaceX and Tesla boss said he had taken four ‘rapid an-tigen tests’ and two gave a neg-ative result and two came back positive.
He went on to say: “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.” In his replies, Musk said he was experiencing ‘symptoms of a typical cold’.
The billionaire has already ruled out he and his family getting a Covid-19 vaccine, should one become available, telling the New York Times podcast Sway he didn’t think the Covid-19 was a r!sk to them.
When asked if he or his family would be getting the jab, he said: “No, I’m not at r!sk for Covid. Nor are my kids.”Musk has previously been acc*sed of spreading false information about the v!rus.
Back in July, he got involved in a Twitter sp-at with Columbia University v!rologist Angela Rasmussen, who acc*sed Musk of spreading ‘false and da-ngerous misinformation’ after he cla!med that the sharp rise in positive cases in the US was due to testing errors.

“This is a big part of why C19 positive tests are going up while hospitalizations & mortality are declining.”But this was d!sputed by Rasmussen who said the tests don’t give false positives enough to its accounts for the rise in cases and shared stats that showed hospitalizations were rising in states that were experiencing the outbre-aks.
She added: “No one benefits if people with platforms allowing them to reach millions are spreading demo-nstrably false information and public health guidance.”In March, Musk tweeted to say: “Based on current trends, probably close to zero new cases in the US too by end of April.”The US has had more than 10 million positive cases of Covid-19 and 243,000 loss.
Musk also spoke out aga!nst the lockdown the US introduced in May. The 49-year-old chose to defy local lockdown rules and opened up his Tesla factory – posting on Twitter he said: “Tesla is restarting production today aga!nst Alameda County rules. I will be on the line with everyone else. If anyone is arr-ested, I ask that it only be me.”California approved, but an unelected county official il-legally overrode. Also, all other auto companies in the US are approved to resume. Only Tesla has been singled out. This is super me-ssed up!”
