Off the back of the recent ‘monkey-pox’ virus, a new hematological disease has manifested in Iraq.

The country is now facing a newly detected outbreak of fevers that are causing infected patients to bleed to death.

Identified as the Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever, it is said to be typically transmitted by ticks to animals and then spread from animals to humans. Animal tick hosts include wild and farmed animals such as cattle, buffalo, goats, and sheep.

Human to human transmission can also occur from close contact with the blood or secretions of others.

It can cause severe and uncontrolled internal and external bleeding, intense fever, vomiting, and death for two-fifths of people infected. There is currently no vaccine for the virus.

According to Haidar Hantouche health official for the Dhi Qar Province,

“The number of cases recorded is unprecedented.”

In the village of Al-Bujari, a recent surge has recorded 43 cases including eight deaths. This increase in cases well exceeds the total of recorded cases since the initial documentation of the virus in 1979.

WHO’s spokesperson Ahmed Zouiten ‘hypothesized’ over the outbreak saying that the lack of ‘tick-spraying’ livestock in 2020 and 2021 could be a likely cause. In line with the climate change agenda, Zouiten added,

“Very cautiously, we attribute part of this outbreak to global warming, which has lengthened the period of multiplication of ticks.”

Health authorities are now citing concerns over the transmission of the infection by the consumption of red meat, which treads a similar pattern to the meat-related warnings and advice issued around the globe during the monkeypox outbreak.

Dr. Azhar al-Assadi who specialises in hematological diseases at a hospital in Nasiriya, said there are fears that cases will explode during the country’s festival of Eid al-Adha in July due to the increased slaughter of animals and contact with meat.

The overseer of the region’s abattoirs, Fares Mansour of Najaf Veterinary Hospital said,

“People are afraid of red meat and think it can transmit infection.”

According to officials the outbreak of Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever is reported to have heavily affected meat consumption.
