Twice this week, we visited people in our neighborhood who have chikungunya, caused by a mosquito bite. Most of our kids and their parents have, or have had, a fever together with achy joints and muscles. It usually lasts for three days. There are some cases that are severe and last longer. Medication that relieves the pain and fever is Tylenol. You can protect yourself by using mosquito spray, but this is not accessible to our people.
