Chikungunya is a viral disease through the bite of Aedes aegypti mosquito or Aedes albopictus acts as an intermediary or vector carrying chikungunya virus in its body. It is common in the tropics and often causes endemics, densely populated areas, high population mobility, and many water reservoirs, natural habitats (e.g. bamboo cuts, coconut shells and leaf busts). Chikungunya fever is often confused with dengue fever because the symptoms are almost the same, but the symptoms of joint pain are an important symptom of chikungunya fever.
