) are transmitted by thrips and cause significant losses in quality and yield of many vegetables, legume and ornamental crops in many tropical and subtropical regions (Mumford et al., 1996; Pappu et al., 2009; Mandal et al., 2012).
The virus causing CCHF is a RNA virus which belongs to the genus Nairovirus (this name comes from the Nairobi sheep), in the family Bunyaviridae
. CCHF is a severe disease and is one of the many viral haemmorhagic fevers.
Hantaviruses are a large group of RNA viruses that belong to the family Bunyaviridae
. Reservoirs for pathogenic hantaviruses are specific rodent species, suggesting a long history of virus rodent coevolution.
In an interview with The Frontier Post, Sahibzada Fazal Ahad said that the Congo virus is a tick-borne zoonotic viral disease caused by CCHF virus of genus Nairovirus (family Bunyaviridae
) which is a serious threat to public health.
This virus is a member of the genus Nairovirus in the family Bunyaviridae
In Africa, the HF viruses belong to one of three families, namely the Arenaviridae (Lassa and Lujo viruses), Bunyaviridae
(Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) and Rift Valley fever (RVF) viruses) and Filoviridae (Ebola and Marburg viruses).
This classification is no longer used since the system has been updated using family grouping of viruses: Flaviviridae, Togaviridae, Reoviridae, Orthomyxoviridae, and Bunyaviridae
Intensive study revealed that the agent involved was a phlebovirus of the Bunyaviridae
family similar to one recently identified in China called severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome virus, or SFTSV.
gelidus mosquitoes yielded several viruses of public health importance belonging to the family Togaviridae and Bunyaviridae
apart from JEV.
Hantaviruses (family Bunyaviridae
, genus Hantavirus) have emerged as an important rodent-borne zoonosis that is distributed globally (Jonsson et al., 2010).
