Captured in a metropolitan Atlanta, Georgia primary school, this photograph depicts a young Asian-American schoolgirl, who was in the process of drawing with a pencil on a piece of white paper atop a table that had been covered by a layer of removable brown paper. It is important to know that these objects are known as fomites, and can act as transmitters of illnesses. Viruses and bacteria are able to remain alive on their surfaces after being handled by an ill child, who can then inadvertently transfer these germs to another child, who subsequently handles these schoolroom articles.
