  1. All sampled animals on which CCHFV-positive ticks were found (6/91), including weakly positive ticks, and the tick species of the most CCHFV-positive sample. The CCHFV genotype was determined by comparing the real-time reverse-transcriptase polymerase chain reaction (127 bp) data using the BLAST tool (National Center for Biotechnology Information). For abbreviations, see Table 1
  2. n  Number of ticks, + positive ticks, (+) weakly positive ticks, ×3 (3 specimens of H. dromedarii)
