    2014 final data for the United States

    • In 2014, chikungunya was not a nationally notifiable disease in the United States. However, chikungunya cases could be reported to ArboNET, the national surveillance system for arthropod-borne diseases. These are final 2014 data reported to ArboNET for chikungunya virus disease.

    • In 2014, a total of 2,792 chikungunya virus disease cases were reported to ArboNET from U.S. states for 2014 (Table 1 & Map). Eleven locally-transmitted cases were reported from Florida. All other cases occurred in travelers returning from affected areas.

    • A total of 4,702 chikungunya virus disease cases were reported to ArboNET from U.S. territories for 2014 (Table 2). Of these, 4,651 were locally-transmitted cases reported from Puerto Rico, the U.S. Virgin Islands, and American Samoa. The remaining 51 cases occurred in travelers returning from other affected areas.
