This 2013 image depicts a Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) scientist harvesting H7N9 virus, grown for the purpose of sharing with partner laboratories for research purposes. Note that she was wearing appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), which included gloves, a full body smock, and a head covering, consisting of a face shield, and a head covering, providing her with clean, filtered air. Note that her activities were taking place within the confines of a negatively pressurized flow hood, which by drawing air into the hooded cabinet, prevented the escape of contaminants back out into the laboratory environment.
