Entomological studies during the 1971 yellow fever epidemic of Luanda, Angola



Entomological studies during the 1971 yellow fever epidemic of Luanda, Angola



Mosquito News 33(4): 568-572



In 1971, an outbreak of yellow fever occurred in Angola in the city of Luanda, where the main vector, Aedes aegypti (L.), has not been recorded in recent decades. Entomological studies during the outbreak revealed that an invasion of the city by A. aegypti had taken place from inland areas, where it is prevalent. All three known forms were present; A. aegypti queenslandensis (Theo.) outnumbered the type form and A. aegypti formosus (Wlk.) and was the only form found indoors.
