Hello sir nd happy diwali. Actually my friend had chicken gunia but now he is cured. As it is diwali today i invited him to my house . Someone told he that this virus may spread even after 2 weeks by the cured person. I would like to know the truth . Nd weather i shd invite him tonight or not?

Thank you for your question. Chikungunya is not considered contagious between people. Chikungunya is a virus spread by mosquitoes. It is not normally a serious health issue as it only lasts for 3-7 days. A person who is infected with Chikungunya virus and is cured cannot transmit the disease to other person. This type of virus can only be transmitted in blood transfusion from infected person.
