Will chikungunya reach your neighborhood?

Tuesday, July 22, 2014

Could chikungunya be coming to your neighborhood? Right now, chikungunya has been detected in all these states (dark blue = locally-acquired cases; light blue = travel-associated cases):


Are you surprised by this map? This map is probably going to change as the summer goes on. So many families travel to Florida with their children to visit theme parks like Disney. Florida is the only state (dark blue) where we have detected locally-acquired cases. The light blue states represent travel-associated cases. There have been 2 cases of chikungunya in Florida so far.
