I haven't heard mention of the Chikungunya Fever since my time in South Africa some 40 years ago!!! Like Malaria it can be nasty stuff!!!

Note Well: Chikungunya causes a 104 deg fever for 2-3 days, will cause rashes and settles in the joints....in older patients the pain can last for several years...there is no vaccine for it!!!
