Warnings of increased risk of chikungunya have been sent to people traveling to the Indian Ocean. It is advised to take regular precautions against mosquito bites.//

93 cases have been reported by the UK Health Protection Agency this August compared to last year’s average of 6. According to the HPA's annual conference, Indian Ocean Islands and Indian mainland have had cases of mosquito-borne virus. Insect repellents, long trousers and long sleeved shirts specifically during daytime are recommended for travelers.

According to the World Health Organization nearly 110,000 people had been infected with the virus during the epidemic between March 2005 and February 2006.

Mosquito bites spread the virus. The symptoms of chikungunya are high fever, headache, joint pains, rashes, nausea and vomiting. Currently, there is no vaccine against Chikungunya.
