  • "An urban epidemic of yellow fever occurs when jungle yellow fever makes the jump into a large human population. The forest-dwelling mosquitoes, perhaps an Aedes africanus or a Haemagogus in South America, fly beyond the borders of the jungle into the territory of a city-dwelling Aedes aegypti."
