A rural virologist

This blog is about the journey of a virologist as he starts his career in a rural setting - Umtata - Mthatha.  (Not quite rural, but good enough.) [Wikipedia: Mthata]

The purpose of the blog is to let people he left behind know what he's up to, and to let people who don't know him get some insight into virology, medicine in a rural setting, and the two combined. [Wikipedia: Virology]

He is employed by his employer, but this blog contains his ideas, and not those of his employer, or other institutions with which he is or isn't associated.  He will also omit trade secrets from the blog.

Politics - internal and external - will not be discussed here.  Personal grievances will not be aired here.  He will stick to those rules, and anyone posting here shall kindly do the same.
