Description:Baboons, Papio papio, and green monkeys, Cercopithecus aethiops, are shown here during a Marburg investigation in Victoria Falls, which borders Zimbabwe and Zambia.
Many baboons and green monkeys, shown here riding atop grain cars located on a Victoria Falls railway bridge, were trapped, and underwent blood testing as part of the Marburg virus investigation, which moved to the border of Rhodesia (now Zimbabwe), and Zambia. All of the blood tests came back negative.
