Captured in July 2014, this image depicted a team of Pakistani Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) residents, as they were conducting an investigation of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF), while in Golra Sharif, Islamabad, in the country of Pakistan, after the Pakistan Institute of Health reported that a patient from that area died from the disease. FETP residents identified a family member, who also tested positive for CCHF. This disease has a 40% mortality rate, and is transmitted to humans by tick bites. Further investigation by the team revealed animals infested with ticks. Here the team was checking a family goat for a tick infestation.
