Description:This photograph, taken in 1975 during the Rhodesian, now Zimbabwean Marburg fever outbreak investigation, shows a Wankie, Rhodesian (now Zimbabwean) roadside, which was a popular resting site among hitchhikers.
This site was one of the locations where two hitchhikers, who were later treated for Marburg hemorrhagic fever, waited for a ride. Evidence indicates that the male traveler (case #1), was bitten by an unknown vector at this location, however, no such vector was ever identified as being responsible for initiating this outbreak.
