COVID-19 numbers of positive and negative cases are all over the place. The reason for this is that so many more people are getting tested nowadays, even celebrities. But some have complained that the test results may not be as true as they are made out to be.
Grammy-winning artist Erykah Badu, shared news Friday that she had taken a COVID test, but her results were different.
