Abstract

Crimean–Congo haemorrhagic fever virus (CCHFV) is the medically most important member of the rapidly expanding bunyaviral family . Traditionally, CCHFV isolates have been assigned to six distinct genotypes. Here, the International Committee on Taxonomy of Viruses (ICTV) Study Group outlines the reasons for the recent decision to re-classify genogroup VI (aka Europe-2 or AP-92-like) as a distinct virus, Aigai virus (AIGV).
