Can we detect past infection of Chikungunya with rapid IgM test?

LikeAnswersShare

For chikungunya - IgM antibody levels are highest 3 to 5 weeks after the onset of illness and persist for about 2 months As IgM antibody disappears after months, rapid IgM test may not detect past infection

Rapid IgM test for chikungunya,can detect past infection up to 3- 4 months.

Thank you doctor
