ID#:6589
Description:This roadside near the local Rhodesian, now Zimbabwean, airport was where two hitchhikers likely stopped for an undisclosed period during their travels through the country in 1975.
These two travelers, who later manifested symptoms of Marburg hemorrhagic fever camped here during their hitchhiking excursion through Zimbabwe. It was suggested that the male patient (case #1) was infected with the Marburg virus by close contact with a vector somewhere in Zimbabwe. No such vector was ever identified as being responsible for initiating this outbreak.
