Avoiding dengue while visiting the Caribbean

Illnesses caused by the mosquito borne chikungunya virus were first detected in the Western Hemisphere in very early Dec. 2013. While there have been imported cases of chikungunya for some years, the illness had never been locally acquired until that time. From French St. Martin, the illness quickly spread to other French-speaking islands in the eastern Caribbean and then to other islands and onto the South American continent.
