The health department and the Department of Animal Husbandry were evacuated to the village to prevent the Congo fever from being reported to the Anand district administration. He carried out survey surveys and took samples of sick persons and sent them for testing.

    Khambhat, Gujarat (Rajawadi lived in the village talatalava 8) of vadodara tribe was killed on Saturday in a government hospital. However, he had been undergoing treatment at a private hospital for fever for the last 10 days. But on Friday, he was admitted to Gotri Government Hospital in Vadodara due to his medical condition. Where all the reports, including dengue, were made by doctors. All reports were negative. Platelet counts were also lower than normal for the baby. So doctors expressed the possibility of Congo. His blood sample was sent to the Poona Laboratory. He died late at night during treatment.

    To prevent the spread of the disease, the vaccine of 450 cattle of the village by the herdsmen is spread by
    Congo fever cattle. If a bite of an animal is followed by a bite of a human, then the disease enters the human body. This is an infectious disease. First, about 450 animals from the village were vaccinated to prevent the spread of disease from the animals. As well as those connected with the profession of livestock, personal protection should be used if contact with ill cattle or death occurs. Do not drink raw milk of sick animals without boiling. The Animal Husbandry Department was asked to report if the animals were ill. > Dr. Snehal.J Patel, Deputy Animal Husbandry Director Anand

    Symptoms of Congo Fever If a
    person suffering from Congo fever has symptoms such as high fever, body aches, red sores on the body, joint pains, vomiting, diarrhea, etc., then appropriate doctor should be treated. The prevalence of abortion is especially high in the countryside. Acaricide medications should be sprayed to eliminate it.

    Updated: Aug 31, 2019, 06:15 AM IST

    It seems the deadly Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) has started to spread its tentacles in the state with hospitals in several districts registering suspected cases of the disease. So far, 30 suspected cases of CCHF have been reported in state.

    The administration which is on high alert is taking no chances with any person exhibiting the symptoms of CCHF, especially considering the fact that the highly-infectious disease has a high mortality rate of 40 per cent.

    According to the health department's deputy director (epidemic) Dinkar Raval, there are six confirmed cases of CCHF in the state and out of them, three have already died, whereas the remaining are availing treatment at isolation wards in state-run hospitals. Raval, however, did not clarify the number of suspected CCHF cases in the state.
