The CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, said he has been tested for the Covid-19 virus and resulted both positive and negative, raising controversy over the validity and accuracy of these tests.

On Twitter, Elon Musk explained that he had symptoms similar to fever and decided to do the test four times: the result was positive twice and negative twice.

He commented on his Twitter profile.

“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”.

In any case, Elon – assuming he had the virus – explained that the symptoms were “nothing to worry about” or any different from a normal fever.

Elon Musk sceptical about Covid-19

The CEO of Tesla was already very sceptical about the risks of Covid-19 in the past, explaining that the lockdown is a fascist practice and that he would go out with the risk of arrest.

Musk is not the only one who spoke out against the panic of Covid-19, as Roger Ver and John McAfee also said the same on their social media.

Tesla on the market

Meanwhile, Tesla shares are down 1.29%, partly because investors recently seem to prefer Nio shares to Elon Musk’s company, according to eToro data.

In fact, during the month of October, trading volumes on Nio shares increased by 50% compared to September, while Tesla shares fell by 55%.

This decline in interest could be due to the fact that in the United States there’s a delay in the launch of the new stimulus package to tackle the Covid-19 pandemic and the consequent economic problems that the virus is bringing with the various lockdowns and disruptions to tourism.
