Posted by in category: biotech/medical

A DEADLY virus that kills 30 per cent of those it infects by making them bleed from the eyes has reached Spain after a man was hospitalised last week.

The man in the city of Leon, in Spain’s North West, was diagnosed with Crimean-Congo haemorrhagic fever (CCHF) after being bitten by a tick.

The unnamed patient was hospitalised last week in Leon before being airlifted to another hospital by the Ministry of Defence on Thursday.
