    “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.

                      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.

The rest of the report was negative. The village has also been surveyed from house to house and distributed necessary medicines. As well as information about Congo Fever, a large number of symbols will be distributed. -Do. RB Patel, Health Officer Anand

                              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
