Microsoft co-founder Bill Gates said Tuesday he has tested positive for Covid-19 and is experiencing mild symptoms.

Taking to Twitter, the billionaire philanthropist said he will isolate until he is healthy again.

“I’m fortunate to be vaccinated and boosted and have access to testing and great medical care,” Gates wrote.

Meanwhile, face masks are set to be no longer mandatory in airports and on flights in Europe, the European Union Aviation Safety Agency (EASA) and European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC) said on Wednesday.

The new recommendations will come into effect from May 16, 2022.
