Public health experts are watching for cases of a mosquito-borne illness to spread in the United States.

The Chikungunya Virus can cause fever and joint pain.

It's rarely fatal, but pain can last more than a month in some cases.

Right now, the virus is spreading in the Caribbean and South America.

Experts say it's likely to reach other countries, including the United States.
