Hi..... The majority of patients will recover completely within one to two weeks but some may be left with chronic joint pains which may last several years. Chikungunya virus does not cause any mortality directly but in the presence of other comorbidities it may contribute to a fatal outcome..... Consult your Physician for further advice....
