(12/28/2013)

Western Australian media and Bali Health Officials are warning of a threat of the chikungunya virus during the rainy season now taking place on the Island.

The Bali Daily (The Jakarta Post) quotes the head of the Bali Health Office, Ketut Suarjaya, who confirms cases of chikungunya have been found in the regencies of Klungkung and Gianyar.

A mosquito-borne blood virus, the symptoms of chikungunya include crippling joint pain, fever, headaches, nausea, fatigue and rashes.

The joint pain accompanying the disease can last for several days and is often so debilitating that it sometimes contorts the body of its victim. While the pain may persist for several months, recovery is typically complete.

The media of the disease are Aedes aegypti and Aedes albopictus mosquitoes, also associated with the spread of dengue fever.

Medically, chikungunya is considered less dangerous than dengue fever.

Cases of chikungunya have been confirmed in Indonesia in Bali, West Sumatra, Central Java and West Java.

Western Australian Health Officials have recorded 51 cases of chikungunya in 2013 saying more than 90% of those cases were wholly attributable" from people who had been to Bali.

This is a huge spike in chikungunya cases reported in Western Australia, where only 31 cases of the disease were reported for the entire period of 2008-2012.

Precautions include fogging, insect repellents and the elimination of water catchment situations in which the mosquitoes breed.
