  • Description:
    Basic Information: epidemiology, hosts, vectors -- Integrated Vector Management (IVM) for Potential CHIKV Vectors: surveillance, source reduction, immature control, adult mosquito control resistance monitoring – Prevention of Transmission: personal protection, household prevention.

    Chikungunya (CHIKV) is an arthropod-borne virus (arbovirus) transmitted by Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquito-vectors. Outbreaks have been described in Africa, Southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent and Indian Ocean islands. A 2007 outbreak in northern Italy highlighted the risk of local transmission of CHIKV in the US via imported cases. Like Italy, many areas of the US harbor competent mosquito vectors and naïve hosts, which create the potential for emergence of CHIKV. The CDC and PAHO have developed a preparedness and response plan that elaborates on information provided below.
