Further evidence of transmission of this central African lineage was found in 2006–2007 in Gabon where a dengue-like outbreak occurred involving 20,000 suspected cases (Leroy et al. 2009). All this activity in central Africa was of the ECSA genotype, however, the lineage was distinct from that of the isolates associated with the Indian Ocean outbreaks (Peyrefitte et al. 2008). This outbreak in Gabon also linked transmission of the virus to the mosquito Aedes albopictus further signifying the importance of this species as an epidemic vector (Pages et al.

1971). When low levels of activity were reported, it was postulated that the infections were a result of humans entering forest habitats when they were bitten by infected sylvatic vectors that tended to have a lower vectorial capacity than urban vectors due to a lower preference for human hosts compared with other vertebrates. These small outbreaks were periodic and covered a wide geographic range but rarely caused significant numbers of cases. This epidemiological pattern was quite distinct from that seen in Asia during the same time frame, perhaps most significantly due to the association of enzootic maintenance of CHIKV in Africa with a number of alternate vector species.
