Researchers have confirmed that the swine Flu has reached the level of a pandemic with 11.000 people infected in 42 countries include some African lands.
This strange virus can evolve, adopting new forms that are difficult to detect. It worries scientist because the virus can be transferred from person to person and the mixture is part swine, part bird and part human. Some suggested human interference; while some seems to think that it is a punishment from God to the West.
Africa Matata conducted this poll in South Africa and in the Congo:
55 percent, it is a real disease. We need to be aware, wash our hands and be careful.
27 percent blamed white people for trying new experiments, they believe that it might be man-made.
8 percent: God punishes the sinners with plagues like the Swine virus. They believe that prayer can heal sickness like this and HIV.
15 percent were undecided or gave a different answer.
What do you think Africa?
