Singapore: Chikungunya

I thought I was a bit peaky last week. Turns out the exploding head, joint pain, muscle aches, fever, eye pain, rash, loss of appetite and taste sensation were down to a spot of debilitating mosquito-borne viral disease. The Environmental Health Institute confirmed today that it was Chikungunya which also occurs in Singapore along with the similar Dengue, although it could have come from Bangladesh at the end of last month.

Not nice.
