Thanks for your inquiry!

Chikungunya is a virus that is transmitted to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, it can cause an illness that is most often characterized by fever, joint pain, headache, fatigue, nausea, vomiting, muscle pain and rash.
