    The yellow fever outbreak in Brazil has taken a backseat to the flu outbreak spreading globally.  But, the death toll from yellow fever has now tripled and travelers are being warned.

    The World Health Organization (WHO) said on Monday there are 35 confirmed cases of the disease, including a case confirmed in the Netherlands for a traveler who had recently visited Sao Paulo state. Sao Paulo even closed its zoo and botanical gardens Tuesday as the yellow fever outbreak that has led to 70 deaths is picking up steam.

    The big Inhotim art park, which attracts visitors from all over the world, also announced that all visitors would have to show proof of yellow fever vaccination to be allowed to enter. The park said the measure was preventative only and that so far, no case of yellow fever had been found there.

    Yellow fever is a potentially life-threatening viral disease that is transmitted to people by the bite of an infected mosquito. Yellow fever is a very rare cause of illness in U.S. travelers. The degree of sickness ranges in severity from a self-limited febrile illness to severe liver disease with bleeding, and even death. The virus has killed 20 people since July.

    Health officials have said the disease could quickly spread and become an epidemic in crowded areas, but immunologist Dr. Anthony Fauci told Daily Mail Online that getting the yellow fever shot is the best way to prevent travel-related cases of yellow fever. Brazilians stood in lines for hours to get yellow fever vaccinations in the country’s largest states, including Sao Paulo, last week.

    The WHO said 777 human cases of yellow fever had been reported in eight Brazilian states since December 2016 and that 261 people had died from the virus.  WHO officials said the confirmed cases of yellow fever are likely to have been contracted in areas where there have been yellow fever outbreaks among primates. “There is an ongoing threat of an outbreak related to the fact in non-human primates,” D. Fauci explained. “There is an ongoing reservoir of yellow fever.”

    1. Yellow Fever, is that anything like Jungle Fever?

      Just another reason not to let anyone come across the southern border.
      Sgt.

    3. Heartless says:

      Darn, going to play hell with those skimpily-clad babes come Carnival. Guess we fellas need to invite them up here to Norte America. Just repeat after me to the ladies: venha comigo mulher bonita

    4. Jim in Va. says:

      Sgt. Dale…touche!

    5. Sean says:

      Triples? Triples from what?

    6. Outlaw says:

      I know this comment will either not get through moderation or get posted so long after I make it that it will never be seen, but I LOL @ this site these days. I am embarrassed I was once an active member. I remember when there would be hundreds of comments per article. This website had so much potential, but these days it seems like just an article mill for advertising income. Really sad. I still wonder to this day if Mac’s alter ego is Braveheart. I have definitely caught other trolls on this website posting under multiple handles.

    7. john stiner says:

      I noticed that add listed above for body armor. That is a prep I believe people should have.

      If you expect there to be war and fire fights, then add body armor to your guns and ammo stock piles.

      Remember not to ling ago that Democrats in the US Senate tried to pass a bill that would outlaw people owning and possessing body armor? I guess they want it to be easier to kill you when the Jack-Boots come.

      Better get it while you can.

    8. Joel Walbert says:

      Are we sure its yellow fever? Or is it another EboLIE/Zika style hoax that is a convenient scapegoat for agri & petro chemical toxicity?

    9. Yohan Smythe says:

      More of the WHO pushing vaccines. I’ll have none of it.

    10. Adam Selene says:

      Doctors have known how Yellow Fever is transmitted for more than 140 years, there has been a vaccine for 90 years, yet it is still common in Africa, South America and Central America. That’s one more fact showing that there are s******e countries.

    11. Plan twice, prep once says:

      Wow, Brazil, isn’t that where the CDC fundraiser Zika virus start?
