Detail

The geographic distribution of chikungunya virus and its mosquito vectors has changed dramatically in recent years. This risk assessment was completed to assess both the current risk that chikungunya virus presents to the UK, as well as the risk that it would present if/when the mosquito vectors are established in the UK.
