Chikungunya Strikes Again!

But this time it's in Italy, where 205 cases have been identified between June and the end of September. One death was reported, although the patient had "significant underlying co-morbidities". Researchers are calling this the first outbreak of the usually tropical disease in a "temperate" nation. Which brings us back to... Global Warming! The spread of the Aedes mosquito continues its march to the North.
