Elon Musk still struggles to figure out whether he has Covid or not, after testing both positive and negative multiple times, but said he feels some minor symptoms of a common cold, insisting that’s exactly what a coronavirus is.

SpaceX and Tesla mogul tweeted on Saturday that he “most likely” has a moderate case of Covid, even though he is unsure after getting conflicting results from at least four tests in a single day.

Am getting wildly different results from different labs, but most likely I have a moderate case of Covid. My symptoms are that of a minor cold, which is no surprise, since a coronavirus is a type of cold.

In a separate tweet he elaborated further on his symptoms, reiterating that it “feels just like a regular cold, but more body achy and cloudy head than coughing and sneezing.”

While he did not mention any particular tests of labs, on Friday Musk, 49, embarked on a quest to sort the accuracy of polymerase chain reaction (PCR) Covid-19 tests, soliciting information on the average false positive rate, and whether it’s “possible to generate a false positive if you simply run enough cycles.”
