Entitled, “Quarantine Stations Prevent Entry and Spread of Communicable Disease”, this photo depicts one of a number of skulls shipped from the Philippines, which were seized by the CDC San Francisco Quarantine Station due to violation of the foreign quarantine regulations regarding the importation of human remains. Some of the skulls were decorated with animal parts. The feathers could have come from a country affected by avian flu, and potentially, could have brought avian flu into the US. This photograph, by Andre D. Berro, MPH, Quarantine Public Health Officer, NCID, Division of Global Migration and Quarantine, Quarantine and Border Health Services Branch, earned Andre a First Place award in the 2008
Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of Domestic Programs.
