Disease control training exercise. Medical workers training in emergency procedures to be used in the event of an outbreak of infectious disease. They are preparing packets of pills of the antibiotic drug Ciproxin, to be distributed to patients. In the event of an epidemic of disease, local facilities, such as this squash court, will be commandeered by the authorities to be used to co-ordinate the response. It is hoped that an efficient, planned and speedy response will help to minimise the impact of an epidemic. Photographed in the UK.
