Pitt County has its first case of Chikungunya, a mosquito-borne virus that causes fever, joint pain, swelling and other symptoms.
This sounds like a virus I don’t want to get. Although, being this is North Carolina, the name – Chikungunya – might be mistaken for a woman who would shoot someone.
Keep in mind there are other mosquito-borne viruses that can be contracted here in ENC. They are:
Usetacud virus – symptoms include increased ego, swollen chest, and bragging about things you did when you were younger
Mitahshudotta virus – symptoms may include focusing on things that haven’t happened, daydreaming, and being noncommittal to direct questions.
Dillsmupikal virus – symptoms include increased blood pressure, horizontal shaking of the head, and irritability.
