Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) is an insect-bourne virus, of the genus, Alphavirus, that is transmitted to humans by virus-carrying Aedes mosquitoes. There have been recent outbreaks of CHIKV associated with severe morbidity. CHIKV causes an illness with symptoms similar to dengue fever. CHIKV manifests itself with a prolonged arthralgic disease that affects the joints of the extremities. The acute febrile phase of the illness lasts only two to five days. The pain associated with CHIKV infection of the joints persists for weeks or months.
Please be aware of this disease. It is very serious in Muar, Melacca, Tangkak and Singapore has 24 cases currently!!!
My mother is sick of this disease and she say that was really disastrous as for at least 5days she couldn't even talk properly or walk properly due to joint pain and fever. Please be extra careful!!!
THAT IS WHY I AM BANNED FROM GOING BACK HOME!!!
