Chickungunya (CHIKV) is a mosquito-borne virus that causes high fever and severe, often chronic joint pain. In late 2013 it emerged in the Americas for the first time and has since spread rapidly throughout the region, infecting more than 1 million in the Caribbean and North, South, and Central America. CHICKV is very debilitating and has caused significant workplace disruptions in a number of the Countries hardest hit by the outbreak, with large percentages of the labor force missing work due to the symptoms related to the virus.
