Ebola and Zika and...yellow fever?

In case you were too busy reading about the hysteria over Zika, maybe you should know that not only are occassional cases of Ebola popping up in west Africa, but there has been a yellow fever epidemic that killed over 100 people in Angola.

More HERE.

international travelers are supposed to get yellow fever vaccine shots, but so far at least four cases have been imported into China from returning travelers.
but since there is a good vaccine, it probably won't go epidemic anywhere else soon.

Dengue, Zika and Yellow fever are all from the same virus family...
