Kansas state officials say 2 of the types of mosquitoes that can transmit a new mosquito-borne virus have been found in the state. The Topeka Capital-Journal reports that no cases of the disease, known as chikungunya, have been confirmed in Kansas but state epidemiologist Charles Hunt says the mosquitoes that typically carry the virus have been discovered. The newly discovered virus has spread quickly through the Caribbean. 4,600 cases of the disease have been confirmed there and the virus has also been found in patients in Florida and 7 other states. The state epidemiologist says that while the disease is not usually fatal it can make a person very sick. It's usually spread when someone returning from the Caribbean is bitten then the mosquito transmits it to someone else.
