Mosquitos...St. Martin style

Posted: Updated:

If you're one of the 9 million Americans who plan a visit to the Caribbean every year, you need to hear the latest advisory from the CDC, particularly if you're going soon.

It says there have been 10 cases of the mosquito-born chickun-gunya virus among residents in St. Martin.

The virus can bring extreme and sudden joint pain, with fever and a headache.

It's a miserable infection that can last for weeks, but it's easy to prevent, just wear a bug spray with deet.
