Lindsay Lohan has been hospitalized in London to treat the rare and incurable Chikungunya virus, a new report claims.
The 28-year-old picked up the virus — which is transmitted by mosquito bites — while vacationing in Bora Bora shortly before New Year’s Day.
After filming her upcoming Esurance commercial in LA, she returned to London, where she was reportedly checked in to King Edward VII’s Hospital after becoming so ill she could no longer walk.

According to recent reports, the actress is being treated for a high fever and “unbearable” joint pain, which “could last for months.”
This appears to be a drastic change since Dec. 29, when she took to Instagram with the photo below, writing, “In good faith with good people. I refuse to let a virus effect [sic] my peaceful vacation.”
