Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF)

Please note that after 323 individuals were investigated for Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) virus infection in Turkey in 2006, the virus is once again on the agenda in May 2009. Two individuals undergoing treatment for CCHF in Samsun (Black Sea province)  died in mid-May.

Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) is a viral haemorrhagic fever of the Nairovirus group. Although primarily a zoonosis, sporadic cases and outbreaks of CCHF affecting humans do occur. The disease is endemic in many countries in Africa, Europe and Asia.

The geographical distribution of the virus, like that of its tick vector, is widespread. Evidence of CCHF virus has been found in Africa, Asia, the Middle East and Eastern Europe. Healthcare workers in endemic areas should be aware of the illness and the correct infection control procedures to protect themselves and their patients from the risk of nosocomial (hospital-acquired) infection.

For more information please check the websites of WHO Regional Office for Europe and ECDC – European Center for Disease Prevention and Control.
