Erykah Badu is understandably confused after somehow testing both positive and negative for COVID-19 this week.
The Grammy-winning artist shared the news Friday, telling fans that while she was asymptomatic, she tested positive in only her left nostril, leaving the “Afro Blue” songstress slightly befuddled.
“No symptoms. Was tested for COVID. Same machine. Left nostril positive. Right nostril negative,” she tweeted. “Maybe they need to call Swiss Beats so they can do a versus between them. Funny thing is, Dr. ONLY reported the positive result. What the fack is goin on here. Rapid Test. $$$$ smh.”
Badu also attached a screenshot of the unusual result. She added that she and her crew are required to take a COVID-19 test prior to any livestream broadcasts for the safety of the band and staff members.
Earlier the same day, Elon Musk tweeted that he also encountered some funny business regarding his COVID-19 test results.
“Something extremely bogus is going on,” he wrote. “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.”
