This image was taken during an in-progress investigation, by Malaysian Field Epidemiology Training Program (FETP) resident, Dr. Thilaka Chinnaya, during which time it was found that overcrowding, and poor ventilation, contributed to an outbreak of nosocomial adenovirus type-7, among 32-young children, inside a pediatric ward in Johor, Malaysia in 2012. It was determined that partitions placed in front, and between the cubicles of the pediatric wards, had caused the conditions, which facilitated the transmission of disease. The FETP trains workers on the ground to help countries build sustainable capacity for detecting and responding to health threats. The program develops in-country expertise so that disease outbreaks can be detected locally and prevented from spreading. See PHIL 19867, for another view of this scenario.
