Baghdad: A new kind of disease is spreading rapidly in the Middle-East Asian country of Iraq these days. And in this disease, the patient has a high fever and blood comes out of his nose. It is being told that the patients suffering from this disease are dying due to excessive bleeding through the nose. According to information about the disease, the World Health Organization says that there have been 19 deaths from the disease in Iraq so far. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, it is a virus-borne disease, for which no vaccine is available yet. According to a report that has come to light, a health worker fell prey to the infection of this virus during the spraying of pesticides on the cow.
Health workers in rural areas of Iraq are reportedly working wearing PPE kits after the outbreak of the disease and this hemorrhagic fever has been named Crimean-Congo Haemorrhagic Fever (CCHF), which is spreading rapidly from animals to humans. In fact, according to the World Health Organization, this disease is spreading in animals by the bite of insects. It is being said that by coming in contact with infected animals, humans are falling prey to this infectious disease. So far, 111 cases of CCHF infection in humans have been reported in Iraq. Regarding this disease, the doctors say that the infection of this virus can spread rapidly because there is bleeding both inside and outside the patient's body.
The most serious of these is bleeding from the nose. The cause of death of 2 out of five cases of CCHF is nose bleeding. Haider Hantouche, a health official from Dhi Kar province, said that the number of cases of this CCHF is unprecedented. More than half of the cases of this infectious disease have been reported in southern Iraq, a poor agriculturally-dominated region. According to the health official, in the past years, the cases of this disease could have been counted on the fingers, but now the disease is spreading quite rapidly. Doctors say that in Dhi Kar province, the infection is spreading from wild and domestic animals such as buffalo, cows, goats and sheep.
