Chikungunya is a mosquito transmitted alpha virus. Since its emergence in Africa, the global distribution is rapidly expanding, the disease has spread to most continents. The spread to new areas is possible due to the travel of infected persons and presence of mosquitoes in these new areas that are able to spread the disease. The spread has been found to be more in tropical and sub-tropical countries. Several data driven empirical approaches and spatiotemporal forecasting have been used to forecast chikungunya spread in places like the Americas. Some of these forecasting methods have been used to predict infected cases and locations based on machine learning. Although there is currently no specific treatment and vaccine in use, there are several vaccine candidates in different stages of clinical trials that have shown promising results.
