Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, says that his skepticism about the coronavirus is growing. He has no plans to make a coronavirus vaccine once it becomes available. CNN reports regarding this.
“Neither I nor my children belong to the COVID risk group,” Musk said.
According to Musk, “everyone dies someday” and “stay at home” campaigns are not needed to stop the spread of the virus. However, he notes that he has responsibilities towards employees who are afraid of being infected with the coronavirus and do not want to go to work. Musk says he feels obligated to pay their salaries.
“If my co-worker comes and tells me that he is afraid of getting infected or that his family members are at risk because of his infection, I will allow him to stay at home,” Musk said.
According to the Bloomberg Billionaires Index, the third richest man in the world, Elon Musk, said in April that the order “stay at home” is de facto imprisonment.
