Photographed during an epidemiologic study, in an unidentified location in China, this image depicts a Chinese healthcare worker with a patient in a clinical setting, in the process of completing a questionnaire, which would reveal to the specialist, pertinent information about the man in order to enable her to begin the investigative process, which would hopefully lead to a proper diagnosis of the patient’s medical issues.
