Many South African countries have been hit hard by this most recent outbreak of the influenza virus. Many would argue that these impoverished countries have been hit the hardest out of any other region in the world.
Their lack of medical resources as well as their constant contact with livestock, make them most at risk of getting the swine flu this season. The Western Sahara is also finding it hard to cope with the threat of a influenza outbreak. Their location as well as their inability to get sufficient amounts of water to flush out the region are causing the citizens to become more susceptible to the swine flu.
The Western Sahara region of Africa is suffering financially as well, so if the swine flu were to attack the region in large numbers, the country would be unable to produce enough antiviral drugs to suffice for its people.
