Abstract : The investigations and analysis of data allow us to conclude that a Crimean hemorrhagic fever focus exists in Rostov region. It is associated with the northeastern slopes of the Donets ridge and the Severny Donets floodplains. The Crimean hemorrhagic fever focus borders continue to expand. The most effective prophylactic measures against Crimean hemorrhagic fever are: (a) Personal prophylactic measures, preventing tick bites of humans and Crimean hemorrhagic fever virus infiltration by other means, and increased sanitary training among the population. (b) Systematic continuous acaricide chemical treatment of cattle against tick infestation should be carried out by the veterinary service during April to August. (c) Maintenance of a sanitary-epidemiological routine in medical institutions to prevent the infection inside them. (Author)
