Billionaire Tesla CEO Elon Musk, who has promoted Covid-19 misinformation and fiercely objected to vaccine mandates and stay-at-home orders throughout the pandemic, said on Monday he has “supposedly” contracted the virus for a second time.

Musk said via Twitter he is experiencing “almost no symptoms.”

Musk’s skepticism over whether he has the disease echoes comments following his first brush with the coronavirus in late 2020, when he questioned the accuracy of Covid tests after he said he received different results—two positive and two negative—on the same day.

He later said he “most likely” had a moderate case of Covid-19, though continued to question the accuracy of the tests.

Musk traveled to Germany last week for the opening of Tesla’s sprawling “Gigafactory” in Berlin, which was attended by German Chancellor Olaf Scholz.
