Congo Fever Case Confirmed In Scotland
A man who recently returned home to the UK is being treated in complete isolation in hospital for a potentially deadly disease.

Tests revealed the 38-year-old, who flew into Glasgow from Dubai, has Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF).

He was admitted to hospital less than three hours after arriving in Scotland, and is now said to be in a critical condition at Gartnavel General Hospital's Brownlee Centre in Glasgow, which specialises in infectious diseases.

Will send karma for the good find. I really hope this is an isolated case, if something like this or Ebola spread into a major city then we would be in big shit.

No this makes you get into a line and start dancing single file with your hands on the next person's shoulders.

"It is not a virus which is transmitted through the air. As such, the risk to those who were in close contact with him is minimal.

"Clinical features

"The length of the incubation period for the illness appears to depend on the mode of acquisition of the virus. Following infection via tick bite, the incubation period is usually one to three days, with a maximum of nine days. The incubation period following contact with infected blood or tissues is usually five to six days, with a documented maximum of 13 days.

Onset of symptoms is sudden, with fever, myalgia (aching muscles), dizziness, neck pain and stiffness, backache, headache, sore eyes and photophobia (sensitivity to light). There may be nausea, vomiting and sore throat early on, which may be accompanied by diarrhoea and generalised abdominal pain.

Over the next few days, the patient may experience sharp mood swings, and may become confused and aggressive.
After two to four days, the agitation may be replaced by sleepiness, depression and lassitude, and the abdominal pain may localize to the right upper quadrant, with detectable hepatomegaly (liver enlargement).

Other clinical signs which emerge include tachycardia (fast heart rate), lymphadenopathy (enlarged lymph nodes), and a petechial rash (a rash caused by bleeding into the skin), both on internal mucosal surfaces, such as in the mouth and throat, and on the skin. The petechiae may give way to ecchymoses (like a petechial rash, but covering larger areas) and other haemorrhagic phenomena such as melaena (bleeding from the upper bowel, passed as altered blood in the faeces), haematuria (blood in the urine), epistaxis (nosebleeds) and bleeding from the gums. There is usually evidence of hepatitis. The severely ill may develop hepatorenal (i.e., liver and kidney) and pulmonary failure after the fifth day of illness.

The mortality rate from CCHF is approximately 30%, with death occurring in the second week of illness. In those patients who recover, improvement generally begins on the ninth or tenth day after the onset of illness."

ok guys i think i have caught the clap of some girl i shaged a few weeks ago when i phoned NHS 24 for advice about my aching balls i was asked about these symptoms

fever, myalgia (aching muscles), dizziness, neck pain and stiffness, backache, headache, sore eyes and photophobia (sensitivity to light). There may be nausea, vomiting and sore throat early on, which may be accompanied by diarrhoea and generalised abdominal pain.

this was last night i phoned i shit u not i was asked about all those syptoms what the fuck dose this mean are they expecting it to spread??? also the nurse said if i contract these syptoms i have to phone them back straight away. the conclusion i have drawn up from this is that the medical authorities are very concerned about this and wanting it kept quite
