Yellow Fever

There is no specific treatment. People can be rendered immune to the virus through vaccination, and outbreaks can be contained by eliminating or controlling mosquito populations. Thanks to such measures yellow fever is no more. Nevertheless, the disease is still present in Africa and South America where access to vaccines are sometimes lacking.

Carroll put his own life on the line when he let an infected mosquitoe bite him. He got a severe case of yellow fever, but when he got over it he tried to help the people who caught yellow fever to get well. This is how yellow fever was found for the first time.

They say that if you open your kitchen cabinet and a lot of mosquitoes fly out then more than likely one is carrying yellow fever.They also say that yellow fever came to the U.S. in colonial times when the mosquito larvae was found in barrells that were shiped over seas.

When the Aedes aegypti mosquitoe bites you it like to bite humans on the ankle. The mosquito is mainly an early morning or late afternoon biter.
