Entitled, “Man with Racing Camel”, this image was captured by CDC Deputy Branch Chief of the Special Pathogens Branch, in the Division of Viral and Rickettsial Diseases, NCEZID, Pierre Rollin, MD. The picture was taken during a joint Rift Valley fever/Alkhurma hemorrhagic fever virus (AHFV) investigation in 2010, in Najran, Saudi Arabia. Najran has been a hotspot for Alkhurma virus disease. People can become infected with AHFV through tick bites. Studies show that close contact with domestic animals, or livestock, may increase a person’s risk of becoming infected with AHFV. The picture earned Dr. Rollin a tie for the First Place award in the 2010 CDC Connects Annual Public Health in Action Photo Contest, in the category of “International People”.
