‘Ridiculous Number’: Elon Musk Doubts Accuracy of COVID-19 Test Results


Elon Musk has expressed doubts about the accuracy of COVID-19 tests, saying that people who test positive should get another test.

The Tesla and SpaceX founder has repeatedly downplayed the severity of the pandemic and voiced his discomfort, even dissent, with social distancing guidelines and shelter-in-place orders.

“There are a ridiculous number of false positive C19 tests, in some cases ~50%,” Musk has tweeted. “False positives scale linearly with [the number] of tests.”
