VIROLOGICAL - 2017 - Real-time Genomic Surveillance of the Yellow Fever Virus Outbreak in Brazil, 2017. Recent successes in sequencing Ebola and Zika viruses using MinION sequencing technology (Quick et al, 20162; Faria et al, 20172, Quick et al, 20176) have proved that high quality whole viral genomes can be generated in near real-time (often < 2 working days) during viral outbreaks.

VIROLOGICAL - 2017 - Real-time Genomic Surveillance of the Yellow Fever Virus Outbreak in Brazil, 2017

The portability, low cost-per-run, and real-time data production afforded by the MinION means that genomic data can be generated at the source of the outbreak in real time, permitting rapid channeling of the data to inform intervention strategies. On 6th January 2017, Brazil reported a Yellow Fever Virus outbreak that started in December 2016 (ECDC 20174). The outbreak has since grown to be the largest observed in the country for decades, and has reached areas where vaccine coverage is limited.

JOURNAL OF INFECTION - OCT 2016 - Yellow fever virus: Increasing imported cases in China

Eleven imported cases of confirmed yellow fever occurred in China from March of 2016 (Fig. 1Fig. 1), prompting calls to strengthen surveillance system at the border ( On Mar 12, the first imported case of yellow fever was confirmed by China CDC. This patient who is a 32 years old Chinese male worked in Luanda had fever and chills on Mar 8. When he arrived in Beijing, he immediately in hospital and now he is in critical condition with liver dysfunction.

And he is non-vaccination of YFV before going abroad ( Then the other cases were confirmed in following days.

ECDC 05/07/16 Mission report: Yellow fever outbreak in Angola

Cases have been imported into other countries in the region, raising concern about the international spread of the epidemic. In this context, from 10 to 20 May 2016 the European Commission and ECDC deployed a team of public health and humanitarian experts in Angola. The mission team reviewed the epidemiological situation, assessed the implemented control measures (to later advise the Angolan health authorities), evaluated the risk of importation of yellow fever to the EU, assessed the risk for EU citizens, and provided advice to the European Commission.

Although the number of new reported cases has decreased over recent weeks and a mass vaccination campaign reached about half of the targeted population, the outbreak is still ongoing and can’t yet be considered under control. Local transmission is being reported in many areas of the country.

Yellow Fever in a Worker Returning to China from Angola, March 2016 - Volume 22, Number 7—July 2016

In 2013, an estimated 130,000 persons in Africa experienced fever with jaundice or hemorrhage associated with yellow fever; ≈78,000 of these infections were fatal (1). Recently, an outbreak of yellow fever was reported in Angola (2). This serious viral disease affects persons living in and visiting tropical regions of Africa and Central and South America (3). No case of yellow fever had been confirmed in China until this year (3). In March 2016, a 34-year-old man who had recently returned to China from Angola sought medical treatment at the Shanghai Public Health Clinical Center in Shanghai, China.

Nine years earlier, the patient had undergone cardiac valve replacement for rheumatoid heart disease and was currently receiving warfarin therapy. Physical examination revealed a temperature of 37°C. ECDC 31/05/16 The risk of international spread of yellow fever is re-assessed in light of the ongoing outbreak in Angola, DRC and Uganda. ECDC has updated its rapid risk assessment on the outbreak of yellow fever with the latest developments, more comprehensive information on the current situation in Angola, Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) and Uganda and an extended threat assessment for the EU.

There is also a risk of further international spread through introduction of the virus into areas with a competent mosquito vector and susceptible human populations. However, the risk of importation of the virus to the EU by returning travellers is limited because EU citizens are most likely to get vaccinated before travelling.

PLOS 14/03/13 Phylogeographic Reconstruction of African Yellow Fever Virus Isolates Indicates Recent Simultaneous Dispersal into East and West Africa.

Abstract Yellow fever virus (YFV) is a mosquito-borne flavivirus that is a major public health problem in tropical areas of Africa and South America.

PLOS 14/03/13 Phylogeographic Reconstruction of African Yellow Fever Virus Isolates Indicates Recent Simultaneous Dispersal into East and West Africa

There have been detailed studies on YFV ecology in West Africa and South America, but current understanding of YFV circulation on the African continent is incomplete. This inadequacy is especially notable for East and Central Africa, for which the unpredictability of human outbreaks is compounded by limitations in both historical and present surveillance efforts. Sparse availability of nucleotide sequence data makes it difficult to investigate the dispersal of YFV in these regions of the continent. To remedy this, we constructed Bayesian phylogenetic and geographic analyses utilizing 49 partial genomic sequences to infer the structure of YFV divergence across the known range of the virus on the African continent.

The yellow fever epidemic, which has killed at least 171 people in the Darfur region of western Sudan, received help from the Institute of Technology Immunobiological (Biomanguinhos): the unit sent 2.2 million doses of the vaccine. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the African country is suffering the worst outbreak of the disease in decades.

Since September, was identified when the epidemic began, 35 locations were hit Darfur and 849 suspect cases reported. To reverse the situation, WHO launched vaccination campaigns in the most critical regions.
