Ridiculous number of false positive COVID-19 tests in US: Musk

Billionaire Elon Musk has said that there are a “ridiculous number of false positive COVID-19 tests” in the US.

Musk, who spearheads electric car company Tesla, voiced his opinion about the infectious respiratory disease on social media.

“There are a ridiculous number of false positive C19 tests, in some cases ~50%. False positives scale linearly with # of tests. This is a big part of why C19 positive tests are going up while hospitalizations & mortality are declining. Anyone who tests positive should retest,” Musk tweeted.
