Özet

Introduction: Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a viral zoonotic disease which is mainly transmitted by tick bite. Contact with blood or body secretions of viremic humans or animals is also among the other modes of transmission. In this study, the serological states in terms of CCHF tested in healthcare workers (HCW) who had had contact with two fatal patients with a diagnosis of CCHF. The relation of the transmission possibility with the phylogenetic analysis of the virus were evaluated.
