risk assessment

​Following the confirmation of two cases of autochthonous chikungunya on the Caribbean island of St Martin, ECDC performed a rapid risk assessment. Although there is a risk that travel-related cases may be seen in continental Europe, onward transmission in the EU from imported cases during the winter season is not to be expected.
