Chikungunya – Hard to pronounce, but easy to prevent

Chikungunya is similar to Dengue, but the fever and joint pain are more intense in the case of Chikungunya.
Chikungunya cannot affect the same person twice.
There is no vaccine.
Generally it does not cause death, but more vulnerable persons and those with diseases such as diabetes, hypertension, renal failure, tuberculosis, among others, should be medically monitored because there have been cases of fatality in this group of people.
