Gate says says he tested positive for Covid-19 on Tuesday first time since the pandemic outbreak in over 2 years two years
IT News Nigeria:
Bill Gates said on Tuesday announced on Twitter that he tested positive for Covid-19, and will be isolating until he gets better.
The WHO donor said “I’ve tested positive for COVID. I’m experiencing mild symptoms and am following the experts’ advice by isolating until I’m healthy again.”
He added that“I’m fortunate to be vaccinated and boosted and have access to testing and great medical care.”
Gates Foundation was to meet Tuesday “for the first time in two years,” but all have changed as he caught virus.
“We will continue working with partners and do all we can to ensure none of us have to deal with a pandemic again,” Gates added.
The Billionaire has been vocal champion of coronavirus restrictions since the start of the pandemic – from lockdowns and social distancing to masking and even vaccine mandates.
According to reports, though not a doctor, his opinions have gained traction because the Gates Foundation is a major donor to the World Health Organization (WHO). It also invests billions in the development and distribution of vaccines globally.
