World Health Organization (WHO) describes Chikungunya as a viral disease that causes fever and severe joint pain. Because the virus has no cure, treatment is focused on relieving the symptoms, which could also include muscle pain, fatigue, nausea, headache and rash. According to WHO, severe complications are rare and most infected people will recover fully, though some may have lasting joint pain for several months or years.
