One More "VIRUS" Is Coming; Learn More About the WHO's "Priority" Illness

Due to climate change, new dangerous viruses will emerge, according to scientists.

To learn more about the new virus known as Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF), read on.

A new "deadly virus" that is very likely to appear as a result of climate change has been warned about by scientists.

According to the WHO, the Bunyaviridae family tick-borne virus (Nairovirus) that causes Crimean-Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) has a patient fatality rate of 10–40%.

The probability of transmission from animals to people is increased by the widespread distribution and ongoing existence of Hyalomma marginatum ticks, which spread the CCHF virus.

Mobility of cattle and other animals as well as climate change may have an impact on the geographic distribution of CCHF.
