2010 SC Chikungunya Virus Cases
Updated Monday, February 14, 2011
The geographic range of chikungunya virus is primarily in Africa and Asia. For information on current outbreaks, consult CDC’s Travelers’ Health website (http://www.cdc.gov/travel). Given the current large chikungunya virus epidemics and the world wide distribution of Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, there is a risk of importation of chikungunya virus into new areas by infected travelers.
