This 2012 photograph was captured during a field study in the city of Cocoyoc, located in the northern state of Morelos, Mexico. The image depicted Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) veterinarian, Nadia F. Gallardo-Romero, DVM, inside a laboratory environment, wearing the appropriate personal protective equipment (PPE), while she was supporting an unknown species of bat by its wings that had been captured during an epidemiologic field study. The doctor’s PPE consisted of a disposable ventilated protective facemask, which covered her face and entire head, latex gloves, and a pink laboratory gown, all of which protected her exposed skin and clothing from possible laboratory environmental contaminants.
