Chikungunya Virus

Post by Chapalamed on Tue Nov 18, 2014 11:36 pm

I saw warnings at the GUADALAJARA AIRPORT recently for this VIRUS. Although it is not deadly it is very painful !
It has been dubbed as "BREAK-BONE" fever and has originated in the Caribbean but has made it to the U.S. and norther Mexico.


  • There is no person-to person transmission
    It is only transmitted via Mosquito bite
    Signs/Symptoms include: Muscle, body and headaches, fatigue, nausea, rash  and can be confused with DENGUE which is endemic to this part of Mexico.
