Abstract:

The incidence of haemorrhagic fever among lumber-jacks, construction workers and mineral oil workers, and other communities working in territories with foci, should be regarded as an occupational risk and suitable protective measures should, therefore, be taken not only by public health bodies, but also by other administrative organizations. The notification of cases of haemorrhagic fever in winter, associated with foci of extracted infection forest hamlets, straw stacks -- places where rodents accumulate in winter, conflicts with the seasonal transmission of infection. Parasitological investigations in the foci failed to establish that ticks Ixodidae and Gamasidae played any part in the transmission of the infection to humans.
