yellow fever
A jaundice, or virus, known as a flavivirus, it is transmitted to humans through the bite of infected mosquitoes. People get yellow fever from the bite of an infected female mosquito which injects the yellow fever virus into the skin.

Yellow fever disease is diagnosed based on symptoms, physical findings, laboratory testing, and the possibility of exposure to infected mosquitoes. There is no specific treatment for yellow fever; care is based on which symptoms caused it.

Steps to prevent yellow fever include use of insect repellent, protective clothing, and vaccination.
