- adj. Alternative spelling of viremic.
Sorry, no etymologies found.
Previously uninfected Aedes and other species of mosquitoes will feed on infected, viraemic (virus circulating in the bloodstream) animals and thus amplify and perpetuate the outbreak by transmitting the virus to the animals on which they subsequently feed.
Patients with the RVF-haemorrhagic fever syndrome may remain viraemic for up to 10 days.
Domestic ruminant animals, such as cattle, sheep and goats, are viraemic (virus circulating in the bloodstream) for around one week after becoming infected.
The outbreak is attributed to the exposure of workers at the abbattoir to blood of infected ostriches during the viraemic stage in the birds.
If some of the animals in the herd are already infected and viraemic (although not yet displaying obvious signs of illness), the virus will be transmitted among the herd, and the outbreak will be amplified.
