Speaking during a podcast interview with Kara Swisher, 49-year-old Musk stated that neither he nor his children are at risk for Covid-19 and therefore would be unlikely to need the vaccine.
“This is a no-win situation. It has diminished my faith in humanity, this whole thing… The irrationality of people in general,” Musk said.
He also decried lockdowns across the globe and in the US in particular, having previously referred to them as “unethical” and “de facto house arrest.”
Musk said widespread lockdowns were a mistake and only at-risk people should quarantine “until the storm passes.”
We have a totally irrational approach to the situation. People are lockdown in an environment that can easily make them sick. Using in masks, no free flowing air through hospitals and nursing homes.
As one person stated in reaction to this. ‘In my country, deaths in a week, 6 covid related, 138 cancer. But the whole country is in states of lockdown – with medical services for cancer screening and treatment stopped.’
Musk also took aim at Bill Gates, highlighting that his fellow billionaire’s criticisms of lockdown skeptics are unfounded and misplaced in Musk’s case.
“Gates said something about me not knowing what I was doing. It’s like, hey, knucklehead, we actually make the vaccine machines for CureVac, that company you’re invested in,” Musk explained, referring to the fact that Tesla manufacturers machines for CureVac. The entrepreneur also noted that he works closely with the Harvard epidemiology team which is currently working on Covid-19 antibody studies.
Where is the conversation about cancer caused by contaminated food chains…and the millions of irresponsible deaths caused by this.
