American billionaire, Bill Gates, the outspoken vaccine advocate has tested positive to the COVID-19 virus.

He said on his verified Twitter account that he is “experiencing mild symptoms” and he is following the experts’ advice by isolating himself until he is healthy again.

Gates added that he’s “fortunate to be vaccinated and boosted.”

The billionaire Microsoft (MSFT) founder also said on Tuesday that the Gates Foundation was “coming together” for the first time in two years and that he’s meeting them virtually on Microsoft Teams, CNN reports.

“We will continue working with partners and do all we can to ensure none of us has to deal with a pandemic again,” he said.

Gates has spoken often about mitigation efforts and how to prevent the next pandemic.

He told CNN International anchor Becky Anderson late last year about his hopes of having the Covid-19 pandemic under control by 2023. He predicts that with expanded vaccine availability, that next year the world “won’t have the level disruption we have had for the first three years of this.”

In total, the Gates Foundation has committed at least $1.75 billion to support the global response to Covid-19.
