Congo Fever in Pakistan: Prevention, Symptoms and Treatment

[ad_1]

After the massive threat of dengue, Pakistan is now at risk of another endemic disease, the Congo fever. Congo Crimea Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) is a deadly viral disease caused by livestock and wildlife. Basically it is caused by Tick (Chichar in Urdu), an external parasite that lives on the blood of animals. Due to the mass killing of sacred animals in this devout setting, the danger of this disease in Pakistan is increasing on the eve of Eidul Azha.

Employees in the livestock sector and those dealing with sacrificial animals face huge risks. According to the Pakistani health department, sacrificial animals imported from Iran, Afghanistan and India pose a huge threat because these countries are facing the epidemic of the Congo virus. Lahore faces a serious risk of this disease, as most of the sacrificial animals imported from India are illegal (they are 60% cheaper than local animals). This year in Rawalpindi, Karachi and Gilgit-Baltistan reported Pakistani Congo fever patients. The mortality rate in the Congo fever is very high, nearly 50%.
