Precautions for Mosquito Born Virus

July 2014--It's not life-threatening, but precautions are worth observing. It has spread throughout the Caribbean region, and can be encountered in Haiti. Contracting the virus can be unpleasant. Common protections include bug repellent and sleeping nets. The following information appears on the U.S. Centers for Disease Control website.

What is chikungunya?

Chikungunya is an illness caused by a virus that spreads through mosquito bites. The most common symptoms of chikungunya are fever and joint pain. Other symptoms may include headache, muscle pain, joint swelling, or rash.

Who is at risk?

Travelers who go to these islands in the Caribbean are at risk of getting chikungunya. In addition, travelers to Africa, Asia, and islands in the Indian Ocean and Western Pacific are also at risk, as the virus is present in many of these areas. The mosquito that carries chikungunya virus can bite during the day and night, both indoors and outdoors, and often lives around buildings in urban areas.
