What is Yellow Fever?
Yellow Fever is a viral illness for which there is no cure, but there is an effective vaccine which will prevent it. It is transmitted by a day-time biting mosquito.
Which Areas Harbour Yellow Fever?
The Yellow Fever virus continuously lurks in the background in the forests and jungles of Africa, Central and South America.
In South America there can be 2 transmission cycles:
- A sylvatic [jungle] cycle maintained by monkeys and mosquitoes
- An urban cycle between humans and mosquitoes
In Africa 3 cycles can occur:
- A sylvatic rain forest cycle between monkeys and mosquitoes
- A savannah cycle that can be maintained by both humans, monkeys and mosquitoes
- An urban cycle between man and mosquitoes
Yellow Fever Symptoms:
The illness develops within six days of being bitten by an infected mosquito, and the onset is usually sudden: fever develops, with headache, body pains, and most often nausea. Jaundice develops with a bleeding tendency, coma and death.
