World repartition of Ae. albopictus mosquitoes (tan areas) and theoretical dispersion of Ae. aegypti in 2008 (the band between red lines, which represent the 10°C isotherms) according to the World Health Organization. Areas where imported cases of chikungunya have been reported during 2005–2008 are marked with a purple circle (small: 1–73 cases; medium: 74–300 cases; large: >300 cases) or a purple triangle when the number of imported cases was unknown. Data sources: US Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, World Health Organization, and literature review on Medline by Pubmed (48).
