Expert: Dengue patients should get tested for Chikungunya, too


KUALA LUMPUR: People living in Chikungunya endemic areas should get themselves tested for the disease other than getting a standard dengue test, says Sungai Buloh Hospital Infectious Disease Unit head Datuk Dr Christopher Lee.

He said both Chikungunya and dengue have similar symptoms during the initial stage, such as fever, rashes and joint pains, and it would be difficult to tell them apart.
