Lindsay Lohan Contracts Mosquito-Transmitted Virus During Holiday Vacation
The actress has contracted a mosquito-transmitted virus during her French Polynesian vacation over the holidays. The virus called Chikungunya is spread by mosquito bites and causes fevers, nausea and joint pain as well as many other unpleasant symptoms.
However, LiLo isn’t going to let the sickness ruin her trip.
She took to Instagram to share a snap from her vacay, saying, “In good faith with good people. I refuse to let a virus effect my peaceful vacation be safe and happy on the new year all #wildfox and positive, healthy new year.”
The 27-year-old also took to Twitter to advise her followers to use bug spray.
Before contracting the virus, Lohan was enjoying her trip, spending Christmas in a bathing suit under the sun. She shared this photo on her account with the caption: “@patrickaufdenkamp #nofilter #merrychristmas.”
Just a few months ago the actress was almost forced to miss her performance in Speed-the-Plow due to another severe illness. However, she rallied though that, too, and was able to make it on stage.
She’s a trooper!
