Abstract

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a tick-borne infectious disease characterized by fever, malaise, headache, nausea, vomiting, diarrhoea, sore throat, muscle aches, haemorrhage and thrombocytopenia. It is a challenge for the population of endemic rural areas, and for healthcare workers, and carries a considerable mortality. The disease is widely distributed in Africa, Europe and Asia, and has become a serious threat to public health in Eurasia. The intention of this review is to summarize the current status of CCHF in Eurasia.
