Tesla CEO and SpaceX founder Elon Musk again created controversy with his skepticism about COVID-19
While the majority of the population is waiting for the coronavirus vaccine, there are some who question the containment measures and lower the profile of the dangerousness of the virus.
One of them is the CEO of Tesla and SpaceX, Elon Musk, who claimed that neither he nor his family will be vaccinated. “They are not at risk of contracting covid-19,” he said on The New York Times.
In addition, he questioned the irrational attitude of people towards the pandemic. “This is a no win situation. This has diminished my faith in humanity,” he added.
When asked about the risk that exists for his employees and his family, the technological entrepreneur replied that “everyone dies.” Musk also shot Bill Gates. “He said something about me not knowing what he was doing. We actually make the vaccine machines for CureVac,”.
As explained by the businessman, he is working in collaboration with the Harvard epidemiology team, which is currently conducting antibody studies against Covid-19.
For his part, the Microsoft co-founder called Musk’s statements “outrageous” and advised him not to talk about what he does not know. “He’s not very involved in vaccines. He makes a great electric car. And his rockets work well.
That is why he is allowed to say these things. I hope he does not confuse the areas [in which] he is not too involved, “said the 64-year-old philanthropist.
Musk has repeatedly caused controversy for spreading widely discredited conspiracy theories, such as that the Egyptian pyramids were built with extraterrestrial technology or that humans live in a computer simulation.
