Just another mosquito born disease: Chikungunya

As if there's not enough to worry about with Dengue Fever throughout Thailand (and Malaria in some parts), I've just been reading about Chickungunga which apparently is on the rise. Another timely reminder to cover up and wear plenty of repellent when in Asia.

It was huge in Phuket a few years ago, we know quite a few people who had it. It is also a worry for Australia.
