En paises como Venezuela, donde la endemia es alta para otras arbovirosis como el dengue y mas recientemente chinkungunya, las autoridades de salud deben fortalecer sus sistemas de vigilancia para detectar precoz y oportunamente la introduccion del virus y afinar los metodos de diagnostico para confirmar la infeccion indice; sin embargo, las altas casuisticas para estos agentes virales parecen reflejar sistemas de vigilancia debilitados, no sensibles y poco oportunos, asi como escases de medidas de control para vectores, por ende surge la interrogante si este arbovirus se hara emergente en nuestro pais y si se establecera como los otros en forma endemo-epidemica y si esto llevara a alterar su comportamiento clinico y la severidad de la enfermedad?
