Abstract
On 3 August 2015, Spain notified, through EWRS, a case of chikungunya virus infection in a resident of the city of Gandía in the autonomous community of Valencia. This rapid risk assessment reviews the first chikungunya case reported from Spain without travel history to endemic areas and the risk of possible onwards transmission.
