First identified in 1952, the Chikungunya virus, a mosquito born virus, is known for its crippling and contorting effects on its sufferers. This virus had mostly isolated to parts of Africa and Asia but has spread widely since it has been monitored. Now it’s found in North America, Europe, India, and beyond infecting millions.
Peru just reported its first locally acquired case of the virus.
We had previously wrote a blog post titled BBC Article on Herbal Remedies in Antigua that explored an article about some natural remedies for Chikungunya.
