This case underscores the importance of a high index of suspicion of MERS-CoV infection in any febrile patients who present after a trip to the Middle East.
This document provides guidance on the spread, presentation, diagnosis, and management of Chikungunya infection.
This guide is for scientists, diagnosticians, laboratory personnel, field operatives, and others interested in presentation and diagnosis of Nipah virus in animals.
The purpose of this manual is to enhance recognition of African swine fever at all levels for early warning and early reaction, so that the disease can be identified and eliminated at the earliest appearance in any area. Special attention has been given to the clinical, anatomical and pathological similarity of African swine fever with classical swine fever.
