How to Prepare Against the Coming Influenza Pandemic; Protect Yourself and Others from Flu

One of the most intriguing (African Writers Series) novels I’ve read remains Elechi Amadi’s “The Great Ponds”. It tells of the ruinous feud between two villages in Eastern Nigeria. …, People were dying in droves, and there was fear and sorrow throughout the villages, reason being that the gods were very angry because of the abominable acts wrought by the citizens. The entire community was thrown into a big crisis and there was pandemonium; destruction was let loose upon the land and the sacrifices and appeasements just could not atone.
