    Animals test positive for Congo fever antibodies

    Syed Intishab Ali | TNN | Updated: May 8, 2018, 06:56 IST
    “Since cattle such as sheep, goats and also bovines in the state tested positive for CCHF antibodies. Cases of CCHF have not been reported much in the state. Last case that was reported from Jodhpur was three years ago. But, NIV had conducted a serosurvey of animals and in which they found antibodies of CCHF, which is why, the NIV officials have reached Jaipur to conduct a workshop of doctors covering different aspect of CCHF. In CCHF, there is high risk of death,” said Dr Bharti Malhotra, senior professor (microbiology), Sawai Man Singh medical college.

    In 2015, a patient with Congo fever was admitted to a private hospital, in the same hospital, some nurses also fell ill with the same symptoms. In Congo fever, there are high chances of its nosocomial spread.
