The Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic disease previously only in Afghanistan and Iraq has now been discovered in Spain. The horrific illness is known as “eye bleed” disease can have a mortality rate of up to 30 percent.
According to a report by the India Herald, a person has gone to a hospital in Spain with hemorrhagic symptoms. The person has been diagnosed with Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever in the city of Leon in northwestern Spain. Experts claim that the disease is tick bourn and can spread via contact with contaminated animals.
The patient reportedly remains in a stable condition, but experts are continuing to keep a close on him.
This is not the only disease we should be keeping our eyes on at this point in history.
The common cold COVID-19 will seem like a dream if the world sees a massive outbreak of any hemorrhagic disease.
