18 Jul Preventing Chikungunya Virus with Promotional Insect Repellent
So the first locally acquired case of Chikungunya was confirmed by the CDC on 7/18/2014 in Florida, which means this mosquito-borne virus has made its way from the Caribbean to the U.S. There have already been over 350,000 infected with this virus in Central America and the Caribbean. 21 people have died from this already. While there have been 28 cases of Chikungunya in the U.S. already, every one of those cases were imported (from those traveling abroad). This new case was contracted locally.
So, now is a great time to promote safe practices of using insect repellent when working or playing outdoors. Simultaneously, you can help prevent this virus and promote your business at the same time by giving away promotional insect repellent! Or in South, we just call it Bug Spray!
Choose from the purse-size spray pen insect repellents printed with your custom logo or message or go for the larger 2, 4, or 8 oz bottles of bug spray. The spray pen sizes include 10 ml of repellent and come with several different cap options. They are typically good for 3-4 applications and a convenient size.
Not only can these useful promotional items help prevent Chikungunya virus, but they also help prevent other mosquito-borne viruses such as West Nile virus, as well as many other diseases they carry.
