San Antonio resident is reporting to US media, he contracted Chik-v in Jamaica

SAN ANTONIO – Retired U.S. Army Sgt. Donnovan Jackson spent eight years instructing soldiers in health matters all over the world, but his personal trip to Jamaica a month ago gave him a personal lesson in infectious viruses when he contracted chikungunya from an infected mosquito.

“I was being eaten alive,” said Jackson, who has a Ph.D. in public health. “Mosquitoes were everywhere and I didn’t take the time to spray down.”
