Recent Outbreaks: Chikungunya spreads to Guatemala

 

“As of September 5, 2014 … a total of 651,344 suspected and 9,182 laboratory-confirmed chikungunya cases had been reported from these areas,” the CDCP warned. Common symptoms of the virus include a fever and joint pain, sometimes accompanied by headaches, rash, swollen joints and sore muscles. 

 

Most cases usually resolve within a week, but some people can suffer severe joint pain for years. The mosquito-borne virus causes fever and severe joint pain, but is rarely fatal. There is no vaccine, and it mainly is treated with pain medication.
