Could Mosquitoes Carry a New Type of Virus?

In recent years, the mosquito-carried West Nile Virus has been the subject of media headlines. However, there is another virus that you should be aware about. The United States has seen a rise in Chikungunya, an infection that is spread from the Asian tiger mosquito. It initially emerged from the Caribbean island of St. Martin, but has since been carried into the US. Chikungunya symptoms include headaches, fever, rashes, and severe joint pains. It is not life threatening, but there is no current treatment for it. For more information on Chikungunya and how to protect yourself, watch this video.
