What is “mosquito arthritis”?
In the past few years, mosquito-borne viruses that have been linked to joint pain have become more prevalent. Chikungunya was the first to hit the headlines, then Zika. In the past, these sorts of illnesses primarily affected individuals in their areas of origin, e.g., Africa, Asia, South Asia. But international travel means that mosquito-borne infections can now spread around the world quite very quickly.
