Congo Fever Under Control

Health Minister Hassan Qazizadeh Hashemi said on Sunday that Congo Fever in Iran is fully under control and the rate of the infection has subdued compared to a few weeks ago.
“There is no reason to worry,” he said allaying public concerns and assuring that “new cases would most likely not be seen, or be rare.” Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) is a disease caused by a tick-borne virus. Symptoms include fever, muscle pain, dizziness, neck pain and stiffness, backache, headache, sore eyes and photophobia. “People, however, must observe the health advice and buy meat from authorized centers only,” the minister added.
Thirty eight cases of the disease have so far been confirmed in Iran. Three infected people died, Mehr News Agency reported.
