Yellow fever is a serious, potentially deadly flu-like disease spread by mosquitoes. It’s characterized by a high fever and jaundice. Jaundice is yellowing of the skin
and eyes, which is why this disease is called yellow fever. This disease is most prevalent in certain parts of Africa and South America. It isn’t curable, but you can prevent it with the yellow fever
vaccine. The Flavivirus causes yellow fever, and it’s transmitted when an infected mosquito bites you. Mosquitoes become infected with the virus
when they bite an infected human or monkey. The disease cannot be spread from one person to another. His phase usually lasts for three to four days. Common symptoms include: headaches, muscle aches, joint aches, a fever, flushing, a loss of appetite, shivers, backaches after the acute phase is over, symptoms will begin to go away. Many people recover from yellow fever
at this stage, but some people will develop a more serious version of this condition. Mosquitoes breed in tropical rainforests, humid, and semi-humid environments, as well as around bodies of still water. Increased contact between humans and infected mosquitoes, particularly in areas where people haven’t been vaccinated for yellow fever, can create small-scale epidemics.
