What do you know about the Chikungunya virus. Ten Things you should know:

1.- The virus is passed to humans by two species of mosquito of the genus Aedes: A. albopictus and A. aegypti.

2.- The strain of chikungunya spreading to the US from the Caribbean is most easily spread by A. aegypti.

3.- Animal reservoirs of the virus include monkeys, birds, cattle, and rodents.

4.- The best means of prevention is overall mosquito control and the avoidance of bites by any infected mosquitoes.

5.- It features sudden onset fever usually lasting two to seven days.

6.- Usually, pains last weeks or months but sometimes years.

7.- The mortality rate is a bit less than 1 in 1000.

8.- No specific treatment is known.

9.- Rest and fluids may be useful.

10.- It was discovered in Tanganyika, Africa, in 1952, but chikungunya virus outbreaks have occurred occasionally in Africa, South Asia, and Southeast Asia. Recently, outbreaks have spread the disease over a wider range.

We hope Lindsay Lohan recovers soon.

Enjoy your day, Yareah friends. Art is everywhere and up to you.

Everyone has highs and lows that they have to learn from, but every morning I start off with a good head on my shoulders, saying to myself, ‘It’s going to be a good day!’ Lindsay Lohan.

Remember that Lindsay Morgan Lohan is an American actress, model and recording artist. She began her career as a child fashion model when she was three, and was later featured on the soap opera Another World for a year when she was 10. A long, long career! Recover soon, girl!
