Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus
The CCHFV RT-epPCR comprises a series of specific targeted reagents designed for Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus detection by using RT-epPCR. Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever virus is a segmented negative-sense single-stranded RNA virus, member of the Nairovirus genus in to the Bunyaviridae family. It is the most widespread tickborne viral infection worldwide: it has been reported in many regions of Africa, the Middle East, and Asia. The virus causes severe viral haemorrhagic fever outbreaks, with a case fatality rate up to 40 %. Transmission to humans occurs through contact with infected ticks (Hyalomma genus) or domestic and wild animals. There is no apparent disease in these animals. Human-to-human transmission can occur resulting from close contact with the blood, secretions, organs or other bodily fluids of infected persons. There is no vaccine available for either people or animals.
