Via ABC News, a report by The Associated Press: Haiti Confirms 14 Cases of Mosquito-Borne Virus. Excerpt:
A mosquito-borne virus that has spread rapidly through the Caribbean since it was documented in the region for the first time in December has been confirmed in Haiti, a government official said Tuesday.
Authorities have confirmed 14 cases of the chikungunya virus in Haiti, Health Minister Florence Guillaume Duperval said.
Duperval said in an interview with Radio Metropole that the government would soon begin airing public health advisories on the radio to alert people to the symptoms, which can include a sharp fever, headache and joint pain.
The arrival of the virus in Haiti was expected. In the neighboring Dominican Republic, authorities have confirmed at least 150-200 cases since it was detected there in March.
