Viral haemorrhagic fevers

Disease / public health area

Lassa fever

Lassa fever is an acute viral illness, transmitted to humans by rodents. It occurs in West Africa, mainly in Nigeria, Sierra Leone, Liberia, Guinea. Primary transmission can be prevented by avoiding contact with Mastomys rodents, especially in regions where outbreaks occur.

Disease / public health area

Hantavirus infection

Hantaviruses are rodent-borne viruses. They may cause severe diseases with potential risks of human-to-human transmission via body fluids or droplets. Eliminating or minimising contact with rodents is the best way to prevent infection.

Disease / public health area

Ebola and Marburg fevers

Ebola and Marburg haemorrhagic fevers are rare diseases but have the potential to cause high death rates.

Disease / public health area

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever

Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever is an emerging pathogen in Europe. Outbreaks have a case fatality rate between 5% and 40%. There is no validated therapy and no safe vaccine.

Disease / public health area

Arenavirus infection

Arenaviruses cause diseases with two types of clinical presentations: neurological and haemorrhagic fever. However, asymptomatic arenavirus infection may occur.

Disease / public health area

Alkhurma haemorrhagic fever

Alkhurma haemorrhagic fever is a viral haemorrhagic disease reported mainly in Saudi Arabia. Transmission is through tick bites and contact with infected blood.
