Via his Dispatches from Haiti blog in the Peoria Journal Star, Dr. John Carroll sends a short warning: Chikungunya Strikes Haiti.
Based on the patients I have examined in Port-au-Prince today and listening to the Haitian doctors I work with, I think Chikungunya virus will strike Haiti hard. I am no public health expert but I think that this is the beginning of another epidemic by a nasty pathogen.
This virus is carried by the same mosquito that spreads dengue. We will all learn about this virus once it hits the US.
