Chikungunya Virus Outbreak Expansion and Microevolutionary Events Published by Dove Medical Press
Date:4/7/2015

(PRWEB) April 08, 2015

Research and Reports in Tropical Medicine has published the review “Chikungunya virus outbreak expansion and microevolutionary events affecting epidemiology and epidemic potential”.

As corresponding author Dr Ann Powers says “The Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) has been causing ongoing outbreaks throughout the globe for the past decade. In the past year alone, the virus has been transmitted in the western hemisphere affecting a staggering 44 countries with nearly 1.2 million cases.”

Dr Powers continues “Interestingly, and somewhat unexpectedly, the continued CHIKV activity has been due to multiple emergence events rather than movement of the virus from a single outbreak. The ability to genetically track the strains of virus circulating allows scientists and public health officials to monitor the risk to new areas and understand changes in the virus that can affect the course of these outbreaks.”

As Dr Thomas Unnasch, Editor-in-Chief, explains “This is an excellent review of the status and challenges of the emerging outbreak of Chickungunya virus in the Americas. It is very timely.”
