This 1975 image depicted a Cercopithecus aethiops, also known as a green, or vervet monkey. This specie of monkey, which was also involved in the first 1967 outbreak in Marburg, Germany, and in Zagreb, Yugoslavia, was being investigated here, as a possible vector for this 1975 Marburg outbreak in Rhodesia, now known as Zimbabwe. This image was captured near one of the camping sites used by hitchhikers in this area, who later developed symptoms of Marburg hemorrhagic fever, which was later confirmed as Marburg fever. These patients were thereafter, referred to as Cases #1 and #2.
