  • 1. Signs and symptoms of Congo Virus:The virus causes fever, headaches and arthritic-type symptomsCongo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a widespread tick-borne viral disease. This diseaseoccurs in wild and pet animals and human beings are also affected by it. The pathogenicvirus, especially common in East and West Africa, is a member of the Bunyaviridaefamily of RNA viruses. Clinical disease is rare in infected mammals, but commonlysevere in infected humans, with a 30% mortality rate.Dengue fever facts • Dengue fever is a disease caused by a family of viruses that are transmitted by mosquitoes. • Symptoms such as headache, fever, exhaustion, severe joint and muscle pain, swollen glands (lymphadenopathy), and rash. The presence (the "dengue triad") of fever, rash, and headache (and other pains) is particularly characteristic of dengue fever.
  • 2. • Dengue is prevalent throughout the tropics and subtropics. Outbreaks have occurred recently in the Caribbean, including Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, Cuba, and in Paraguay in South America, and Costa Rica in Central America.• Because dengue fever is caused by a virus, there is no specific medicine or antibiotic to treat it. For typical dengue fever, the treatment is purely concerned with relief of the symptoms (symptomatic).• The acute phase of the illness with fever and myalgias lasts about one to two weeks.• Dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) is a specific syndrome that tends to affect children under 10 years of age. It causes abdominal pain, hemorrhage (bleeding), and circulatory collapse (shock).• The prevention of dengue fever requires control or eradication of the mosquitoes carrying the virus that causes dengue.• There is currently no vaccine available for dengue fever
