What is Yellow Fever?

Currently, one of our beloved nations face one of the most dangerous disease outbreak. This disease is caused by infected mosquito's. Some of the patients that come in contact with these mosquito's die within 7-10 days, if not shown immediate attention. The World Health Organisation stated that over 1500 people have been killed and counting. This virus affects the tropical areas of Africa, including Angola.
