Elon Musk says he is selling ‘all physical possessions’

Musk has been a harsh critic of both the global response to the coronavirus pandemic and California’s stay-at-home orders, calling them “fascist” during Tesla’s first-quarter earnings call on Wednesday.

“It’s breaking people’s freedoms in ways that are horrible and wrong and not why they came to America or built this country,” Musk said. “What the f–k? Excuse me. Outrage.”

Musk doesn’t take a salary from Tesla or SpaceX, but is the top shareholder of both companies and has an estimated  personal worth of $30-$40 billion. He owns several homes in California valued at over $100 million, according to The Wall Street Journal, that includes a cluster of six homes in the ritzy Bel Air neighborhood of Los Angeles.

 

UN warns coronavirus fallout will lead to the next pandemic – global starvation

The next global pandemic may very well be a hunger pandemic as a result of the fallout from coronavirus. While the World Health Organization warns that stringent guidelines need to stay in place to combat the spread of COVID-19, fellow United Nations agency World Food Program (WFP) believes that it will lead to an uptick in global poverty and starvation, and the response to the virus itself may end up killing more people by the end of 2020.

Last week, WFP’s executive director David Beasley cautioned the UN Security Council that the risk of large-scale famine in much of the developing world was now “of biblical proportions” as a result of the global pandemic.
