This billionaire is also known for being an underdog of the impact Covid-19. Previously, Musk shared his views on the nCoV virus on an episode of the podcast “Sway” in the New York Times. During the conversation, reporter Kara Swisher questioned Tesla CEO about whether he or his family will have a Covid-19 vaccine once it becomes available. Musk said no because he or his children are not at risk for Covid-19 infection.
Previously, Musk made many similar comments, including a July interview with the New York Times. He erroneously asserted that children and young people are not at risk of Covid-19 infection despite evidence that young people become seriously ill or even die from the disease. Musk also ignored data showing that a large percentage of people infected with the virus have no symptoms.
