What is Chikungunya?
Chikungunya is a viral infection, caused by the Chikungunya virus (CHIKV). It’s transmitted to humans through the bite of Aedes mosquitoes carrying the virus, similar to how dengue is spread. In comparison to dengue, which can be a severe and even fatal infection, Chikungunya is typically not life-threatening. However, the joint pain it triggers can be extremely discomforting and disabling. The most common symptoms of Chikungunya include high fever and joint pains. One interesting aspect is that once a person is infected with the Chikungunya virus, they develop lifelong immunity, which means they cannot contract the infection again in their lifetime.
What happens in Chikungunya?
Chikungunya can lead to intense joint pain and stiffness, especially when you start moving. These joint pains can stick around for months or even years, typically targeting the hands and feet. Although there can be complications involving the heart, eyes, and nerves, they are rare. Rashes might also appear after the fever sets in.
What is the recovery time for Chikungunya?
On average, it takes about 30 days (or one month) to fully recover from Chikungunya. However, in some cases, the fatigue and joint pain can be so severe that it has taken as long as 2 years for patients to completely recover from the lingering effects of the disease.
What are the Risk Factors for Chikungunya?
Living in Marshy Areas: Places with lots of wet, marshy land are a favorite hangout for mosquitoes, especially the ones that spread Chikungunya. So, if you live in such areas, you have a higher chance of catching it.
Weakened Immune System: If your body’s ability to fight off diseases is not at its best, you’re more vulnerable to getting a severe case of Chikungunya.
Being Near Stagnant Water: Mosquitoes love breeding in still water. That’s why Chikungunya is more common in areas with puddles of water, like construction sites and slums.
Rainy Season: Mosquitoes multiply a lot during the rainy season. That’s why diseases like Chikungunya are more likely to spread during this time.
How can we prevent Chikungunya?
The most crucial step in keeping it at bay is to control mosquito breeding and their spread. You can do this by:
Getting Rid of Mosquito Habitats: Make sure there’s no standing water around your home, and if you can’t remove it, add insecticides to prevent mosquitoes from breeding there.
Personal Precautions: You can protect yourself from mosquito bites by:
- Using mosquito repellent creams when you go outside.
- Installing mosquito nets on your windows or around your bed while you sleep.
- Wearing long-sleeved clothes and pants if you’re going to an area where there are lots of mosquitoes.
Is Chikungunya the same as Dengue?
No, Dengue & Chikungunya are caused by different viruses. Dengue (pronounced as Dengee) is caused by an RNA virus of the Flavivirus family. It is transmitted from person to person by the bite of the Aedes Aegypti mosquito. Whereas chikungunya is caused by an alpha virus of the “Togaviridae” family and mode of transmission is by Aedes Aegypti species of mosquito which is the same as Dengue.
