Bun·ya·vir·i·dae

(bŭn'yă-vir'i-dē),
A family of arboviruses composed of more than 200 virus serotypes and containing at least five genera: Bunyavirus, Hantavirus, Phlebovirus, Nairovirus, and Tospovirus. Virions in all genera except Hantavirus replicate in arthropods. Virions are 80-120 nm in diameter, sensitive to lipid solvents and detergents, and enveloped with glycopolypeptide surface projections; the nucleocapsid is of helical symmetry containing three molecules of single-stranded RNA (MW 5-8 × 106).

Bunyaviridae

/Bun·ya·vi·ri·dae/ (bun″yah-vir´ĭ-de) the bunyaviruses: a family of RNA viruses whose genome comprises three molecules of circular negative-sense single-stranded RNA; it includes the genera Bunyavirus, Hantavirus, Nairovirus, and Phlebovirus.

Bunyaviridae

A family of single-stranded RNA-enveloped arboviruses, which are spherical to oval in shape, measure 90–100 nm in diameter and are sensitive to lipid solvents and detergents. As a group, Bunyaviridae includes more than 200 viruses, including genera Bunyavirus, Hantavirus, Phlebovirus, Nairovirus and Uukuvirus. Bunyaviridae infect vertebrates and arthropods; some genera cause serious disease (e.g., haemorrhagic fever) and are classified as Biohazard Group 4 pathogens.

Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever (CCHF) is a severe, often potentially fatal disease in humans, caused by infection with CCHF virus (CCHFV) belonging to the genus Nairovirus of the Bunyaviridae family.
CCHF, with fatality rate up to 50%, is caused by a tick- borne Nairo virus of the Bunyaviridae family, hosted by domestic animals like sheep, goat and cattle, which get infected by vector tick bites.
