    MOSCOW (Sputnik) - SpaceX CEO Elon Musk says he likely has only a "moderate" case of COVID-19, as he is showing symptoms of a common cold.

    Musk wrote on Twitter on Saturday, replying to a user’s question about his coronavirus test results, that his symptoms are that of a minor cold.

    On Friday, Musk said on Twitter that his COVID-19 test results had come back both positive and negative.

    It is unclear whether Musk has taken a PCR test or not, but he has posted some speculations on the subject on Twitter.

    ​Musk added in another tweet on Saturday that "Lab I just spoke to said cov2 PCR detection (N1 & N3 genes) below 30 cycles is reliable & above 40 cycles is not."

    NASA Administrator Jim Bridenstine told reporters on Friday that Musk had had no contact with the crew of the SpaceX "Resilience" Dragon manned mission to the International Space Station (ISS) that is expected to take four astronauts into orbit on Sunday.
