Tesla has recorded 5,000 cases of coronavirus infection at its facility.

Nearly 5,000 workers at Tesla’s United States facility contracted COVID-19 while working in the midst of the pandemic. In late spring last year, the head of the company, Elon Musk, announced that he did not plan to close the plant in California, even despite the order from local authorities. In addition, he also noted that he himself will be in the assembly shop of the plant, and even suggested that the police arrest him.

He also promised to move the assembly of electric cars to Nevada and Texas. The authorities backed down. And it was recently revealed that between May and the end of last year, the plant, which employs approximately 10,000 employees, had at least 450 cases of infection.
