This review aims to summarize the current knowledge of the eco-epidemiology of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) virus transmission reviewing the most recent scientific advances in the last few decades of epidemic and non-epidemic ("silent") periods. We explicitly aim to highlight the dynamics of transmission that are still largely unknown. Recent(More)
BACKGROUND Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a virulent tick-borne disease reported in more than 30 countries across Europe, Africa, and Asia.

Five-hundred-and-six Hyalomma anatolicum ticks were collected and studied in two Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) endemic regions of Tajikistan. Antigen and RNA of the CCHF virus were detected in 3.4% of tick pools from the Rudaki district using ELISA and RT-PCR tests. As for the Tursunzade district, viral antigen was identified in 9.0% of the samples(More)
