Chikungunya in the Americas

Updates of chikungunya case counts are publicly released every Wednesday by 12 p.m. MT.

  • As of August 15, 2014, local transmission had been identified in 31 countries or territories in the Caribbean, Central America, South America, or North America.  A total of 580,526 suspected and 6,030 laboratory-confirmed chikungunya cases had been reported from these areas (Updated data from the Pan American Health Organization).
  • Chikungunya virus likely will continue to spread to new areas in the Americas (North America, Central America, and South America) through infected people and mosquitoes.
  • The mosquitoes that transmit the virus are found throughout much of the Americas, including parts of the United States.
  • Since chikungunya virus is new to the Americas, most people in the region are not immune. This means they can be infected and spread the virus to other mosquitoes.
