Figure 2. Borehole involved in 3 child melioidosis deaths caused by Burkholderia pseudomallei–contaminated borehole water, Vietnam, 2019. A) View of area around borehole. The bore cap is ≈80 cm below the soil surface inside the masonry area. Red arrow indicates cracks in the masonry construction that might enable rainwater and soil particles to drain into the borehole area. B) View from above the borehole. Red arrow indicates the unsealed, opened gap around the borehole, which likely enabled rainwater and soil particles to drain into the groundwater during the rainy season.
