SpaceX founder and CEO of Tesla, Elon Musk, said he would not vaccinate against coronavirus when the vaccine becomes available. This was announced on Wednesday, September 30, by Fox Business portal.
According to the publication, the American entrepreneur in a podcast by The New York Times journalist Kara Swisher explained his decision by the fact that he and his children are not at risk for COVID-19 infection.
However, Musk said he was not concerned about the identification of more than 7 million cases of coronavirus in the U.S., because “all people die.
He also criticized the idea of a general quarantine regime, stressing that only people at risk should be isolated.
Musk threatened in May to move his headquarters or production facilities from California to other American states, such as Texas or Nevada.
The entrepreneur complained that the sanitary measures introduced in California due to the coronavirus are too harsh, have a very negative impact on business and do not allow Tesla to fully resume its operations.
