  1. Bunyaviridaenoun

    a large family of arboviruses that affect a wide range of hosts (mainly vertebrates and arthropods)


  1. bunyaviridae

    Bunyaviridae is a large family of RNA viruses that include more than 300 species divided into five genera. These viruses primarily cause diseases in both humans and animals, transmitted through arthropods such as mosquitoes, ticks, or sandflies. They are typically characterized by a tripartite, single-stranded, negative-sense RNA genome. Diseases caused by these viruses include hantavirus pulmonary syndrome, Rift Valley fever, and Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever among others.


  1. Bunyaviridae

    Bunyaviridae is a family of negative-stranded, enveloped RNA viruses. Though generally found in arthropods or rodents, certain viruses in this family occasionally infect humans. Some of them also infect plants. Bunyaviridae are vector-borne viruses. With the exception of Hantaviruses, transmission occurs via an arthropod vector. Hantaviruses are transmitted through contact with deer mice feces. Incidence of infection is closely linked to vector activity, for example, mosquito-borne viruses are more common in the summer. Human infections with certain Bunyaviridae, such as Crimean-Congo hemorrhagic fever virus, are associated with high levels of morbidity and mortality, consequently handling of these viruses must occur with a Biosafety level 4 laboratory. They are also the cause of severe fever with thrombocytopenia syndrome. Hanta virus or Hantavirus Hemorrhagic fever, common in Korea, Scandinavia, Russia, and western North America, is associated with high fever, lung edema and pulmonary failure. Mortality is around 55%. The antibody reaction plays an important role in decreasing levels of viremia.
