Most infected people don’t get any symptoms; but in the minority who do, the disease can develop in 2 phases. In the 1st phase the symptoms start suddenly, around 3 -6 days after getting bitten by an infected mosquito. In this phase people can get a fever, muscle pain, headache, chills, nausea and vomiting. Some of these people then progress to the 2nd phase, which can result in high fever, jaundice (yellowing of the skin and eyes due to liver infection) and internal bleeding, and in some cases it leads to death.1,2
