Congo/Crimean Haemorrhagic Fever virus from Iraq 1979: I. Morphology in BHK21 cells


Congo-Crimean Haemorrhagic Fever virus, isolated from a patient in Iraq, was grown, after passage in suckling mouse brain, in BHK cells. The particles matured after 8–9 days in these cells by budding, usually singly, into cytoplasmic vacuoles throughout the host cells.
