Towards the risk of Yellow Fever transmission in Europe.

Summary of "Towards the risk of Yellow Fever transmission in Europe."

Yellow fever (YF) is an emerging expanding fatal arboviral disease that has been imported at least six times in Europe during the first half of 2018, while only seven travel-associated YF cases have been reported in the last 20 years, and none from Brazil. YF has a history of transmission in Europe which could become recurrent considering the wide globalization of competent vectors. This article argues that epidemiological current changes put Europe at risk of YF transmission. Risk assessment and strategies of control are required.

Medical and Biotech [MESH] Definitions

Vaccine used to prevent YELLOW FEVER. It consists of a live attenuated 17D strain of the YELLOW FEVER VIRUS.

The type species of the FLAVIVIRUS genus. Principal vector transmission to humans is by AEDES spp. mosquitoes.

A genus of plant viruses in the family SEQUIVIRIDAE. Transmission is by APHIDS but depends on the presence of a helper protein encoded by the Anthriscus yellow virus, a WAIKAVIRUS. The type species is Parsnip yellow fleck virus (parsnip serotype).

A genus of DNA plant viruses with bacilliform morphology. Transmission in clonally-propagated plants is by vegetative propagation of infected plant materials. Transmission in nature is by mealybugs, seeds, and pollen. The type species is Commelina yellow mottle virus.

An acute infectious disease primarily of the tropics, caused by a virus and transmitted to man by mosquitoes of the genera Aedes and Haemagogus.
