Beware of Mosquito illness

Everyone loves summer!  Summer is all about hiking, camping, swimming, playing baseball and of course, taking the kids to the park.  But the one thing that can ruin fun time are annoying mosquitos!

State health officials across the USA report a surge of suspected cases of a painful mosquito-borne illness that can leave those infected with severe joint pain that can make walking or even shaking hands unbearable.

The first case of the disease being transmitted on U.S. soil was confirmed in Puerto Rico last month.

The disease was discovered in Africa more than 60 years ago and was detected in the Caribbean late last year.

In recent weeks, state health officials have reported that American travelers to the Caribbean from several states have been stricken with symtoms consistent with “chikungunya!”  (name of disease)
