This photograph was created in order to illustrate the overcrowded conditions, and poor ventilation, which went on to contribute to a nosocomial outbreak of Adenovirus illness among 32 young children in a hospital pediatric ward in the state of Johor, in southern Malaysia, June, 2012. The image was submitted by Malaysian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, Thilaka Chinnayah.
Additional Information:
”Adenoviruses are common causes of respiratory illness, but most infections are not severe. They can cause cold-like symptoms, sore throat, bronchitis, pneumonia, diarrhea, and pink eye (conjunctivitis). You can get an adenovirus infection at any age, but infants and people with weakened immune systems are more likely than others to develop severe illness from adenoviruses.”
