Medical shortages have complicated Venezuela's efforts to treat outbreaks of mosquito-borne fevers, creating long lines at pharmacies to buy analgesics and leaving the ill without ways to control the swelling joints and aching bones that the disease causes. Venezuela has South America's highest incidence of chikungunya, a virus of African origin whose name comes from a Tanzanian term for being doubled-over in pain.
