Coronavirus: Elon Musk makes fun of those who are afraid of the virus

As usual, Elon Musk, the founder of Tesla and SpaceX, posted on Twitter a new message that made a lot of noise where he made fun of people panicking about the epidemic of coronavirus. Faced with a shortage in some toilet paper stores, he calls those who made their reservations stupid.

Elon Musk has made a name for himself on social media. If the boss of Tesla and SpaceX is respected for the work he has done in the automotive and aeronautical fields, he is more criticized for his positions on more sensitive subjects and his controversial messages on Twitter. And he proves it again today, thanks to a new tweet published at the end of last week.

In a laconic message, he says that “The coronavirus panic is dumb”. Without more explanation than that. A few hours later, another Twitter user who follows Elon Musk on the social network responds to this message with another statement: “What is even more stupid is the shortage of toilet paper. In several countries, consumers have rushed into large food stores to store certain products at home, such as toilet paper.

The coronavirus panic is dumb

Obviously, the story does not end there. In a new tweet, Elon Musk responds by posting a photo, in which we see a jeweler’s window with a roll of toilet paper surrounded by a beautiful golden ribbon. Next to it, we find a price: $3,999. And a “tempting” promotional offer: a diamond ring offered for the purchase of this roll. The paper has become so rare that it will become a luxury product.

Whether the panic felt by some people is justified or not, it certainly does not deserve such mockery on social networks. Especially since, even if the figures do not yet reach those of avian flu or the Ebola epidemic of 2014. The global spread of the coronavirus is gaining momentum. There is more and more foci of infection, whether in Europe, the United States and even South America. According to the latest international reports from March 9, 2020, 111,000 cases were recorded and 3892 died.
