Where Has Chikungunya Virus Been Found?

  • Prior to 2013, chikungunya virus cases and outbreaks had been identified in countries in Africa, Asia, Europe, and the Indian and Pacific Oceans.
  • In late 2013, the first local transmission of chikungunya virus in the Americas was identified in Caribbean countries and territories. Local transmission means that mosquitoes in the area have been infected with the virus and are spreading it to people. The virus then spread throughout most of the Americas. (See data from PAHO).
  • For information on current outbreaks, consult CDC’s Traveler’s Health website.
