RURAL LIVING AND AGRICULTURAL WORKERS AT RISK

Talking about risk groups, Assoc. Dr. Büyüktuna said, “There is a higher probability of transmission to people living in rural areas dealing with livestock and agriculture. Because they play a very important role in the life cycle of ticks. Apart from that, our risky groups, veterinarians, slaughterhouse workers, shepherds, farmers, can all be defined as risk groups. In our region, ticks are poisonous. “We do not have a chance to say whether it is or not, we do not do tick analysis anyway. But since it is an endemic disease transmitted by ticks in our region, we find all tick contacts to be risky for CCHF,” he said.
