ABSTRACT:
Chikungunya virus infection is a rapid-onset, febrile disease with intense asthenia, arthralgia, myalgia, headache, and rash. This mosquito-borne alphavirus infection typically occurs in Africa and Asia, outbreaks have also been reported in Europe and the Americas since the 2000s. Although the fatality rate of this disease almost negligible, but the suffering due to this viral fever has been the main notable point. The aim of this paper is to make a general understanding of the disease as well as the structural identity of the virus with the symptoms and probable treatment or prevention.
