In 1967, people from the Berhingwerke got infected by the Marbug virus, causing the disease Marburg Hemorrhagic Fever (MHF). Marburg originated in Central and East Africa, and infects both human and nonhuman primates. The Marburg Virus is in the same taxonomic family as Ebola.

In 1967, 31 people became ill in the German town of Marburg. The primary infections were in laboratory staff exposed to the Marburg virus while working with monkeys or their tissues. The secondary cases involved two doctors, a nurse, a post-mortem attendant, and the wife of a veterinarian.
