Increase in Congo Fever Cases

Pakistan recorded 101 cases of CCHF last year. Awareness is essential to stop CCHF transmission. It is because Eid-ul-Azha is approaching. As a result, the interaction of humans with animals will also increase. 

Causes and Transmission of CCHF

The tick-borne Nairovirus is the cause of CCHF. This virus is carried by animals. These animals include hares, sheep, goats, and cattle. Tick bites or coming into touch with the blood or tissues of infected animals during or after slaughter can spread the infection to humans. Additionally, infectious blood, saliva, or bodily fluids can spread the disease between individuals.
