UK Officials: Fatal Crimean Congo Virus Unlikely To Spread

Image
The UK’s first laboratory confirmed case of Crimean Congo Viral Hemorrhagic Fever (CCVHF) has died. Even so, health officials are stressing that this will not become a public outbreak. The Health Protection Agency is adamant the 38-year-old unnamed man poses no threat to others.

“It can be acquired from an infected patient, but this requires direct contact with their blood or body fluids. Therefore, there is no risk to the general population,” said a spokeswoman.

The patient was diagnosed after returning to Glasgow from Kabul, Afghanistan. His flight connected through Dubai.

He was originally being treated at Gartnavel General Hospital’s Browlee Center, which specializes in infectious disease, but was later flown to London’s Royal Free Hospital’s high-security infectious diseases unit. The Royal Free Hospital houses the national specialist center for the management of patients with hazardous infections.
