Congo Virus – Beware when you get animal for Eidulazha

Ticks transmit the Congo virus, often known as Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF), to both domestic and wild animals, including livestock. Humans can catch this disease by coming into touch with an infected animal's blood, tissues, or fresh meat, or by being bitten by an infected tick that lives on the host animal. If a person comes into intimate touch with an infected person's organs, blood, secretions, or body fluids, there is a risk of human-to-human transmission.The Congo virus cannot resist high temperatures, thus there is no risk of infection spreading through well-cooked meat.
