Musk Tweet Stays

Elon Musk tweeted a piece of misinformation about children being ‘essentially immune’ to the coronavirus, but the social media platform is not removing the tweet.

The billionaire posted on Thursday, that: “Kids are essentially immune, but elderly with existing conditions are vulnerable. Family gatherings with close contact between kids & grandparents probably most risky.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, adults account for most confirmed cases and are at higher risk, children can get sick with COVID-19. This disproves Musk’s assertion.
