Tropical Virus Moves to Italy

Alright, so this article is a bit old, but the tiger mosquito is still a huge problem in Italy. Tons of people at my school–including me–are covered in welts. Afraid we might have bedbugs, my roommate and I went to the doctor and showed him our arms and legs. He said it was nothing to worry about–it’s part of life now–and advised us to buy bugspray. I washed my sheets just in case. I hope we don’t die of chikungunya!
