Chikungunya Virus

By Elegant Resorts Travel Experts

Posted: 17 November 2014

Since late 2013, cases of Chikungunya virus have been reported in the Caribbean. There have also during 2014 been outbreaks in countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans.

You should take appropriate precautions to avoid being bitten by mosquitos including:*
 - Use air conditioning or window/door screens to keep mosquitos outside
 - Use mosquito repellents on exposed skin. Repellents containing DEET, picaridin, IR3535, and oil of lemon eucalyptus and para-menthane-diol products provide long lasting protection. If you use both sunscreen and insect repellent, apply the sunscreen first and then the repellent.
- Wear long-sleeve shirts and long pants
- Wear permethrin-treated clothing
