Elon Musk Tests Positive and Negative for Covid on Same Day

World famous entrepreneur and inventor Elon Musk had himself tested for the novel coronavirus four times on Friday. Half of the tests came back negative. The other half came back positive.

“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.”

Perhaps this news isn’t as surprising as it reads at first. The rapid antigen tests are quickly becoming notorious for the amount of false positives they give, which, according to many critics, are disproportionately high and bordering on not useful.

According to the FDA, the odds of getting a false positive actually go up as the prevalence of the disease lessens with this type of test, due to its very nature. The FDA’s website indicates that one can expect 20 percent false positives in a population where 10 percent of the people actually have the disease, and if that prevalence goes down to 1 percent, the amount of false positives will actually increase to 70% percent.

It is felt by many that the actual nature of these tests and how they relate to the virus are often misunderstood, even by government officials.

A PCR, or polymer chain reaction, test is considered to be much more reliable. This is typically the sort of test required for things such as international travel.

    No need to get tested as we are headed for a vaccine with the ultimate herd immunity for all those who survive. We need to know hospitalization and death rates only, not infection rates.

    COVID is being used as a “TOOL” TO CONTROL THE AMERICAN PEOPLE. DON’T FALL FOR THE LEFT’S DESPERATE TRICKS! THEY WANT EVERY AMERICAN SO SCARED OF COVID THAT THEY WILL DO ANYTHING TO STOP FROM GETTING IT. THAT IS B.S. AMERICANS. LIES, LIES, LIES FROM DEMS AND THEIR OFFSPRING, THE MEDIA!

    DO NOT FALL FOR THE DEM’S GAME!, IT’S NOTHING BUT LIES TO CONTROL AMERICANS. ELON HAS PROVEN THAT BY HIS FOUR TESTS — 2 NEGATIVE, 2 POSITIVE “ON THE SAME DAY!”.

    HELLO AMERICANS! THE Covid testing procedures are NOT RELIABLE and give “FALSE POSITIVES” — Making Americans think that Covid cases are rising when in reality, Covid is on it’s way out, leaving our Country!
    Do NOT BELIEVE FAUCI NOR ANY BRAINDEAD DEMOCRAT — COVID IS NOT RISING, BUT LEAVING OUR COUNTRY!! HOORAY! NOW THAT IS GOOD NEWS!!

    DO NOT LET ANYONE TELL YOU THAT COVID NUMBERS ARE RISING. IT IS THE FALSE POSITIVE THAT HAPPENS WITH THOSE UNRELIABLE TESTS!

    KEEP LIVING YOUR LIVES, DON’T FREAK ABOUT COVID BUT USE GOOD COMMON SENSE AROUND LARGE GROUPS OF PEOPLE! GOOD SENSE WILL BEAT OUT COVID FASTER THAN ANYTHING.

    LASTLY, DO NOT LET THE DEMOCRATS USE COVID AS A WEAPON AGAINST OUR PROPLE, BUT BE KNOWLEDGEABLE AND USE YOUR OWN COMMON SENSE. OUR Nation does not need to be locked down because if Covid, so do NOT ACCEPT ANY LOCK DOWN STATUS — FIGHT ANYONE WHO TRIES TO PULL THAT ON YOU. THEY ARE LYING TO YOU!!
