Elon Musk tested positive for Covid-19 twice! And also negative twice. On the same day.

Nov 14th

Introducing the latest innovation in state-of-the-art medical testing:

The Covid Coin Flip.

Elon Musk announced the results through a tweet.

"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."

That is, shall we say, problematic.

While the rapid antigen test results from BD (Becton, Dickinson and Company, a leading global medical technology company) may be uncertain, you know what results aren't uncertain?

BD's growing revenue!

I had wondered briefly whether BD would respond to Musk's tweet with some snarky reply about the time he put on a demonstration of his unbreakable truck windows by breaking them. But then I remembered BD isn't run by Donald Trump, as much fun as that might be. (Our latest Covid-19 antigen test is a beautiful thing, really remarkable, you're going to be happy, you're going to be very happy, you won't believe how happy you'll be with this test, everybody says so...")

These kinds of episodes call into question, in a very public way, the accuracy of the tests which have come under increasing scrutiny elsewhere.

In fact, the whole testing industrial complex is causing some suspicion. I was recently told an anecdote in which some friends who had been waiting in line after having registered for a Covid test with CVS bailed when the wait got to be too long.

By the time they got home CVS had sent them an email informing them that the tests they never took had come back negative.

So, I guess that's good news?

Just something to keep in mind when our leaders attempt to sway you using certainties where there are none.
