And in Podcast interview Produced by “The New York Times”, the American businessman explained the reason for his decision not to receive the vaccine, saying: “I am not in danger, nor are my children.”
And earlier this September, the US President, Donald Trump, said that he expected that a sufficient number of anti-Corona virus vaccine would be available for all Americans by next April.
Musk, 49, denounced the total closure in the United States, describing it as “an unprofitable situation that reduces my faith in humanity.”
Instead, the billionaire has proposed a more targeted lockdown where “anyone at risk” would be “isolated” until the pandemic passes.
The presenter of the podcast criticized his suggestion, saying that it is possible that humans will die as a result of that, and the mask replied sarcastically: “Everyone dies.”
Many experts believe that the Corona virus kills between 0.5 and 1 percent of those infected, which makes it a very dangerous virus until a vaccine is found to prevent it.
Musk expressed his happiness at not closing his company, “SpaceX” during the last period, saying: “We sent astronauts to the space station and returned.”
In the 11 weeks since March 18, when closures and lockdowns began in some US states, the wealth of American businessmen has ballooned, including Musk, who increased his net worth by $ 14.1 billion, according to a report quoted by Reuters from the Institute for Policy Studies last June.
