The Chik

If you haven't heard of the 'Chikungunya', well that's probably because you're not French. Despite what it sounds like, it is not a dance, nor is it the latest pop song on the charts.
It is something far more dramatic which has actually killed 52 French people and has affacted no less than 110,000 people so far. One more clue - it has to do
with something flying but not with birds - although even in France, people have been talking way more about bird flu than about the 'Chik', as it is now called by the locals.

If you want to know more, go here, here, or here.
