Nearly 500 employees at Tesla’s U.S. plant have contracted the coronavirus while working in the midst of the pandemic.
In May last year, the founder of the company, Elon Musk, announced that he was not going to close the plant in California, despite the order of the local authorities. The entrepreneur stressed that he himself will be in the assembly shop, and suggested that the police arrest him.
He also promised to move production to Nevada and Texas. The authorities backed down. And now it became known that from May to December 2020, at least 450 cases of infection were recorded at the plant, which employs about 10 thousand people.
Earlier, Musk has repeatedly called for the lifting of restrictive measures imposed in the United States due to COVID-19.
