Tesla and SpaceX CEO Elon Musk eventually decided to rely on vaccines. Elon Musk shared his social media account. “To be clear, I support vaccines in general and Covid-19 vaccines in particular. Science is infallible ”. The billionaire entrepreneur had a great reaction by stating in an interview that he and his children would not be vaccinated.
Tesla CEO Elon Musk announced that he trusts vaccines developed against the new type of corona virus.
Elon Musk shared a post on his Twitter account yesterday. “To be clear, I support vaccines in general and Covid-19 vaccines in particular. Science is infallible. In very rare cases, there is an allergic reaction, but this can be easily resolved with an EpiPen (allergy needle)”.
Elon Musk was the source of the conspiracy theories
On the other hand, the billionaire, who is on the agenda with every post he makes on social media, has been the source of conspiracy theories and disinformation about Covid-19 since last year.
For example, in September 2020, the New York Times reporter gave an interview to Kara Swisher. He said he or his children would not be vaccinated. Elon Musk, 49, tested positive for Covid-19 two months after the interview.
Musk had previously claimed that there will be “close to zero new cases” as of the “end of April” last year. But such a situation did not happen.
CHOOSE JOHNSON & JOHNSON
However, a Twitter user asked “Which vaccine would you recommend?” “Probably Johnson & Johnson, but BioNTech and Moderna are also good,” Musk replied.
ONE OF THE MOST EFFECTIVE OPINION LEADERS IN THE MODERN WORLD
On the other hand, Musk, who has millions of followers, retains irrefutable dominance over people’s minds. For this reason, the posts of Musk, one of the opinion leaders of the modern world, are important in the fight against Covid-19.
However, after his negative comments last year instilled great distrust in countless people, he seems to have decided to turn a new page. Musk’s encouragement of more people to get vaccinated could save lives.
