One of South Africa's leading scientists, Prof. Tulio de Oliveira, says the world has entered an age of epidemics and pandemics. He believes it's because of the way humans have treated the planet, leading to the transfer of viruses and bacteria. De Oliveira was recently recognized for his pioneering work in the field of genomics and epidemiology and was nominated for this year's Time 100 - a list of individuals who have made the most important contributions to our world.
