Questions and Answers
  • 1. 

    Yellow Fever was spread by Mosquitoes.

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Yellow Fever is indeed spread by mosquitoes. The virus is primarily transmitted to humans through the bite of infected Aedes mosquitoes, particularly Aedes aegypti. These mosquitoes are commonly found in tropical and subtropical areas, where yellow fever is endemic. When a mosquito bites an infected person, it can acquire the virus and then transmit it to other people it subsequently bites. Therefore, it is crucial to take preventive measures such as using mosquito repellents and eliminating mosquito breeding sites to control the spread of yellow fever.
