Warren Buffett has been dressing down and letting his hair grow out during the coronavirus pandemic, he revealed during Berkshire Hathaway's annual meeting on Saturday.
"It's been seven weeks since I've had a haircut," the billionaire investor and Berkshire CEO said during the virtual event, which was livestreamed by Yahoo Finance.
"It's been more than seven weeks since I put on a tie or anything," Buffett continued. "Just a question of which sweatsuit I wear."
The 89-year-old has likely been avoiding a trip to the barbers and other non-essential social contact to avoid catching the potentially lethal virus.
He joked in March that he was "drinking a little more Coca-Cola" during the pandemic, as the soda "seems to have warded off everything else in life."
Buffett made his latest comments while discussing Berkshire's exit from its positions in the "big four" US airlines. The conglomerate sold $6.1 billion in stock on a net basis in April, which Buffett attributed to dumping airline stocks.
He suggested that people might fly less in the coming years out of fear of catching the virus, or cut back on travel after realizing the ease of working from home. Fewer passengers could force the airlines to drop prices, widening their losses due to the coronavirus.Read the original article on Business Insider
