In brief: Treat symptoms

This is a self limited illness.
There are no antiviral medicines available at this time. The symptoms include high fever, headaches and muscle aches. These should respond to tylenol (acetaminophen) or nsaids. R and r is always a mainstay of any treatment plan.

In brief: Chloroquine

I agree with dr edwards.
Recent research suggests that some patients who do not respond to use of non-steroidal anti-inflammatory medications may respond to Chloroquine phosphate.
