#6303 Picture of a Doctor Putting On Marburg Fever Protective Gear by KAPD
After having donned a protective gown, accompanying facial mask protection, and outer foot-wear, this staff member of the Infectious Disease Hospital in Johannesburg, South Africa, put on gloves for added protection. (Slide 4 of 6; PHIL ID #’s 6600 - 6605)

This Johannesburg, South African staff member, who assisted in treating the patients of the 1975 Rhodesian (now Zimbabwean) Marburg fever outbreak, had to maintain levels of extreme caution before coming into close contact with infectious disease patients able to transmit pathogenic contagion, which in this case were the Marburg virions.

This image was created in 1975 and provided by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention/Dr. J. Lyle Conrad. [0004-0702-2123-1365] by 0004
