2010 Chikungunya Virus Imported Cases in SC

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.
