Elon Musk: Accidents are more dangerous than coronavirus

Elon Musk 's post on Twitter, last week who simply said, "Panic over coronavirus is stupid," caused a stir. And now, the popular businessman has sent a note to his employees SpaceX, which says they are more likely to die from a car crash than from Mesures COVID-19.

The virus has spread to more than 114 countries and has affected some 137.000 people worldwide, with the World Health Organization proclaim the outbreak of coronavirus as a pandemic. Musk insists, however, that the virus "is not among the top 100 health risks in the United States." Instead, the American president Donald Trump declared an emergency in the country to tackle the pandemic more effectively.

As mentioned by the BuzzFeed, Musk compared road accidents to a disease like COVID-19 and even used numbers to support his statement. "There are about 36.000 accident deaths a year, compared to the 36 deaths so far from COVID-19," Musk said.

Elon Musk's attitude towards the pandemic has been criticized. Many professionals health told BuzzFeed that it doesn't even make sense to compare accidents to coronavirus.

"This virus cannot be reduced and while most people will treat it well, there is a percentage that it will not be able to. Some people may end up dying from it, and we need to focus on trying to limit people's exposure, "said Amesh Adalja, a senior researcher at the Johns Hopkins University Center for Health Safety.

On the one hand, automakers such as Ford and General Motors have ordered their non-factory employees to work from home, but on the other hand, there are its employees Tesla and SpaceX still working at the company's headquarters in Hawthorne, California.

However, Elon Musk said in the email he sent them that he was "very" interested in the well-being of his employees. He encouraged his employees to stay home and take care of themselves if they felt sick.
