Chikungunya is an infection spread by the Aedes mosquito. These mosquitoes mainly bite during daytime.
Most people have no symptoms. However, some develop symptoms after a few days to a maximum of two weeks, such as:
- joint and muscle pain
- red blotchy rash
There is no specific treatment for this disease.
Be thorough in the use of mosquito-repellent measures, from sunrise to sunset.
There is no suitable vaccine for travellers.
