Bill Gates tweeted Tuesday afternoon that he has tested positive for Covid-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms.

The Microsoft co-founder, 66, said he would adhere to the advice of medical experts by self-isolating until he is healthy again.

In April, he published a book called “How to Prevent the Next Pandemic". The book focuses on preemptive planning and protective measures that could help the world better manage future pandemics.
