The people of Mzansi took to social media to express their astonishment after the announcement that a man who had HIV is now HIV-free. While many could not contain their surprise, others were skeptical of the news.
Scientists have inched closer to finding the real cure for HIV/Aids after another man - who was until recently HIV-positive - was reportedly successfully cured of the disease in Britain.
This makes him the second person to be cured of the disease. Although scientists have been wary to call it a cure, they have indicated that it is a positive step forward for the future.
But after too many hoaxes and pastors claiming to have cures, it's understandable that Mzansi social media users were not convinced.
One social media user even jokingly asked which pastor had made this new discovery. Others were were not buying the story because they believed that a cure for HIV/Aids would not be good for business for pharmaceutical companies. A Facebook user named Maevo Sebola said:
"Treatment is good for business than curing."
Another user expressed relief, as he said he would be cured soon.
Briefly.co.za learnt that doctors conducted numerous tests on the said patient and they could not find a single trace of the HI-virus three years after they did a bone marrow transplant procedure from an HIV-resistant donor.
