As mentioned yellow fever is not common in Northolt in fact it is unheard off but there have been many cases of patients who brought the virus with them after being infected in the country they travelled to. Unfortunately, there is no treatment or cure of the virus yet. Out of more than 2 million cases reported every year, more than 30,000 result in deaths.
Yellow fever is a virus that is carried and transmitted by a specific species of mosquito common in Africa and South America. One bit is more than enough to transmit the virus and the symptoms begin to show within hours. However, since initial symptoms include headache and muscle aches, it can take around six days to properly diagnose the disease even in a country where it is prevalent. This delay in diagnosis is one of the major causes behind the deaths.
