What Are The Causes of Yellow Fever?

1. Mosquito Bites

The most common way yellow fever is transmitted is through the bite of an infected mosquito.

2. Urban Transmission

In urban areas, yellow fever is primarily spread by the Aedes aegypti mosquito.

3. Sylvatic (Jungle) Transmission

In forested areas, yellow fever is maintained in a cycle involving mosquitoes and non-human primates (such as monkeys).

4. Intermediate (Savannah) Transmission

This type of transmission occurs in rural areas where there is a mix of human and non-human primate populations.

5. Geographical Factor

yellow fever is endemic in tropical and subtropical areas of Africa and South America. People living in or traveling to these regions are at higher risk.
