Captured in May 2014, this image depicts a number of Filipino Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents, as they were working with the World Health Organization (WHO) in Sultan Kudarat, Mindanao, Philippines, on an investigation of an disease outbreak associated with the deaths of eleven people, and ten horses. Henipavirus virus antibodies were identified in cerebrospinal fluid of one of the patients. In an effort to further characterize the virus and identify the source of infection, blood samples of several animals were tested, including cats, dogs, buffalos, and as you see here, pigs.
