Coronavirus panic is dumb: Elon Musk

SpaceX CEO Elon Musk thinks the whole coronavirus pandemic is dumb. The billionaire tweeted his views on the virus that has so far claimed approximately 5400 lives.

Musk sent an email to his employees that they were far more likely to die from a car crash than COVID-19, the disease caused by the novel coronavirus. He added that he doesn’t think it’s within the top 100 health risks in the United States.

The auto industry has been hit due to the virus where recently Lamborghini shut production operations down for over a week in Italy. Moreover, Ford, General Motors, and Fiat Chrysler have all started instructing non-factory employees in the US to work from home.

According to a leaked memo, Tesla advised its employees to self-quarantine if they recently returned from travel to Italy, China, South Korea, Iran, Malaysia, Singapore, or Thailand.
