Three CCHF suspects admitted to PIMS

Three CCHF suspects admitted to PIMS

Islamabad

Three members of the same family -- all of them suspected of suffering from Crimean Congo Hemorrhagic Fever (CCHF) -- are currently under observation at the Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS).

One of the patients is a child Mariam, who was shifted from CDA Hospital to the Children’s Hospital of PIMS Tuesday night after manifestation of symptoms characteristic of CCHF. The other two are adults who are under observation in the main hospital’s isolation ward.

A relative of the suspected patients recently died of CCHF; family history warranted that the three be ruled out for the disease. The blood samples of the victims have been sent to the National Institute of Health for verification. Hospital sources termed the patients as being out of danger.
