Yellow fever in the Gambia, 1978--1979: entomological aspects and epidemiological correlations



Yellow fever in the Gambia, 1978--1979: entomological aspects and epidemiological correlations



American Journal of Tropical Medicine and Hygiene 29(5): 929-940



An entomological survey was conducted in the Gambia in January 1979, during the last phase of a yellow fever outbreak which began during the previous rainy season (see preceding abstract). In the dry conditions which prevailed in January, Aedes aegypti (L.) was the only yellow fever vector present. Two strains of yellow fever virus were isolated from females of this mosquito species caught in a village of western Gambia, where active human cases were documented.
