Chikungunya :: Where does chikungunya virus occur?

The geographic range of the virus is Africa and Asia. For information on current outbreaks, consult CDC?s Travelers? Health website (www.cdc.gov/travel).

Given the current large CHIKV epidemics and the world wide distribution of Aedes aegypti, there is a risk of importation of CHIKV into new areas by infected travelers.
