This 1975 photograph shows P. Geldenhuys (Lt), and M. Isaacson extracting a blood sample from a green monkey, Cercopithecus aethiops, during a Marburg virus investigation. In June of that year, three months after the Marburg outbreak in southern Africa, six health officials mounted a second ecologic investigation to Wankie Park, Victoria Falls, and other nearby sites, where the reservoir of this rare agent was suspected to exist. Green Monkeys were incriminated during the first outbreak in Marburg, Germany in 1967.
