PBC Has its First Case of Locally-Acquired Chikungunya

More of a reason to wear mosquito repellent and get rid of standing water...health officials say two people bitten by mosquitoes in Florida, including one right here in Palm Beach County, have become infected with the chikungunya virus. 

Dozens of cases of the illness have been reported in the state, but prior to this report, all were contracted during travel to the Caribbean. 

The other locally-acquired case was in Miami-Dade.
