Chief Medical Officer, Dr. Kevin Harvey says the case is of an individual who travelled from an affected country and fell ill. The individual had screening tests done at a private laboratory in Jamaica which indicated the illness. A sample was taken and sent to the Caribbean Public Health Agency (CARPHA) for confirmation. Should this be positive it will confirm Jamaica’s first imported case of the chikungunya virus.

“This does not indicate local spread of the virus and we continue to monitor persons living in and around areas visited by the individual. We have heightened our vector control activities to reduce the possibility of local spread,” Dr. Harvey explained.
