CHIKUNGUNYA (Chikunguya)

Chikungunya virus was discovered in the year 1953 from patients in an epidemic of dengue like disease in East Africa and has since been found in South India and South-East Asia associated with epidemics of dengue and haemorrhagic fever. Both Aedes aegypti and A.africanus are vectors in East Africa. Chikungunya virus is an insect-borne virus, of the genus Alphavirus, that is transmitted to humans by virus-carrying Aedes mosquitoes.The Chikungunya virus (CHIKV) causes an illness with symptoms similar to dengue fever. CHIKV manifests itself with an acute febrile phase of the illness lasting only two to five days, followed by a prolonged arthralgic disease that affects the joints of the extremities. The pain associated with CHIKV infection of the joints persists for weeks or months, or in some cases years.

  Calculate your Body Mass Index  
  The body mass index (BMI) is a statistical measure of the weight of a person scaled according to height. BMI is calculated as the individual's body weight divided by the square of their height.

BMI is frequently used to assess how much an individual's body weight departs from what is normal or desirable for a person of his or her height. The excess weight or deficiency may, in part, be accounted for by body fat although other factors such as muscularity also affect BMI.
