Note: this page states that the disease Chikungunya is translated as "that which bends up", whereas the translation on the Chikungunya page itself is translated as bends downward.

The source cited in the line "The derivation of the term is generally falsely attributed to Swahili.[7]," found at http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2870928/ , does not support the line. No mention of Swahili is made in that paper.--Vapor314 (talk) 15:06, 9 April 2016 (UTC)
