Yellow Fever

Yellow fever is a common viral disease spread by mosquitoes in Africa and the Americas. The disease causes fever, body aches, nausea, jaundice, and in severe cases, bruising, bleeding nose and gums, and black vomit. There is a vaccine for the disease, but those who have not been vaccinated can die from it.
