Car crashes more dangerous than coronavirus: Tesla CEO Elon Musk

NEW DELHI: Tesla and SpaceX CEO and tech billionaire Elon Musk thinks that the risk of death from coronavirus infection is less than the risk of dying in a car accident. As per a report by BuzzFeed News, Tesla CEO Elon Musk recently wrote to SpaceX employees an e-mail in which he said: “As a basis for comparison, the risk of death from C19 is *vastly* less than the risk of death from driving your car home.” He went on to add: “There are about 36 thousand automotive deaths per deaths [sic], as compared to 36 so far this year for C19.” The company-wide email was reportedly sent to the employees in the wee hours on Friday.
