Congo Virus – Beware when you get animal for Eidulazha

Ticks carry the Congo virus, commonly referred to as Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF), which infects domestic and wild animals, including cattle. Humans can get this disease by being bitten by an infected tick that is living on the host animal, or by coming into touch with the blood, tissues, or fresh meat of an infected animal. Human-to-human transmission can also occur if a person is in close proximity to an infected person's organs, blood, other secretions, or body fluids.The congo virus cannot survive high temperatures, and properly prepared meat will not allow the infection to spread.
