What is Chikungunya and how is it caused?

Chikungunya is an infectious disease caused by the chikungunya virus (genus Alphavirus). Chikungunya gets its name from a verb in Kimakonde language, which means ‘to become contorted’. This viral disease is transmitted to the humans from mosquito bites and even contact with blood. Chikungunya can be hard to diagnose at first as it’s easily confused with other viral diseases spread by mosquitoes. In most cases, the symptoms may be long-lasting. But that said, they recede slowly if proper treatment is meted out at the right time.

Now, let’s look at the various types, symptoms and causes of chikungunya and how homeopathy has the perfect cure for chikungunya treatment .
