As Angelina would say:
The Tallahassee Democrat is reporting that two cases of chikungunya virus have been detected in my town. Both cases are "imported"; that is, the victims contracted the virus abroad and then returned to Tallahassee.
In one case -- communicated to me by one of my spies -- a faculty member of The Florida State University's geology department contracted chikungunya virus while in Haiti doing some field work.
As of June 14th, there were 42 confirmed cases of chikyngunya in Florida. All, apparently, imported.
