​ECDC has assessed the risk associated with the occurrence of two cases of Crimean–Congo haemorrhagic fever in Spain. This is the first detection of autochthonous human cases of CCHF in Spain and the probability of further infections there remains low. However, additional sporadic cases may occur in the future.

The different risks associated with tick-borne transmission, nosocomial transmission and transmission via substances of human origin are outlined in the document, together with suggested options for response.​
