"The tally of chikungunya cases in the Caribbean, pushed by 19,000 new cases in the Dominican Republic, has surpassed 738,000, "

Great hotel. Adult only, so no kids. Heat added!
Stayed here on honeymoon 2009. Fantastic price we paid 3000 for 2 weeks.

Chikungunya is an infection in humans caused by the chikungunya virus.

The chikungunya virus is present in Africa, southeast Asia, the Indian subcontinent and Indian Ocean islands, where a number of outbreaks have occurred.

Chikungunya virus is a notifiable condition

How chikungunya is spread

Humans and other primates are the natural hosts for the chikungunya virus. The virus is spread to humans by the bite of an infected female Aedes species mosquito – Aedes aegypti or Aedes albopictus. These are the same tropical and sub-tropical mosquitoes that carry the dengue virus. They breed in or near human habitations and prefer to feed on humans during the daytime in shady areas, but may also bite early in the night.

In Australia, Aedes aegypti currently is found in north Queensland while Aedes albopictus is found in a few locations in the Torres Strait. Infections reported in Australia are from people who have travelled overseas to regions where the chikungunya virus is present.

To date chikungunya virus infection has not been transmitted by mosquitoes in Australia. However, since the mosquitoes capable of transmitting the infection are found in northern Australia there is the potential for this to occur.

Signs and symptoms

Chikungunya infection is characterised by sudden onset of:

high fever
severe joint pain mainly in the arms and legs
headache
muscle pain
back pain
rash (about 50% of affected people).
Most people start to feel better after 7 to 10 days although some people will develop longer term joint pain.

Diagnosis

The diagnosis is based on signs and symptoms and confirmed with a blood test.

Incubation period

(time between becoming infected and developing symptoms)

Typically 3 to 7days with a range of 1 to 12 days.

Infectious period

(time during which an infected person can infect others)

Chikungunya cannot be spread directly from person to person.

Treatment

There is no specific treatment for chikungunya infection. The use of pain medication and rest can provide relief for some of the symptoms.

Prevention

Exclusion from childcare, preschool, school or work is not necessary but infected people should avoid being bitten by mosquitoes while they are unwell.
There is no vaccine to prevent infection.
Personal protection and the environmental management of mosquitoes are important in preventing illness. See Fight the Bite for tips how to protect yourself and your family from mosquito bourne diseases.

Probably fine
Just take lots of DEET
and use it in the day too
the mosquitoes that spread the disease don't just bite at night

Not sure I'd take a free holiday to Jamaica just now though
