CA going Third World

CA going Third World

mosquito, CDC, yellow feverIt took California more than a century to rid itself of Aedes aegypti, the mosquito that spreads yellow fever, by the 1970s. It has taken less than 40 years for it to make a comeback, a clear sign that California quickly is descending to Third World status. CBS San Fran reported:

MENLO PARK (KCBS) — A deadly mosquito that hasn’t been widely seen in the Bay Area since the 1970s has been detected in San Mateo County.

It’s called Aedes aegypti and it was found in January at the Holy Cross cemetery in Menlo Park.

HOW TO SPOT THE YELLOW FEVER MOSQUITO: Look For Distinctive White Markings (Photo)

It’s the mosquito that spreads yellow fever, chicken fever, the dengue fever and other diseases. Officials call it “one of the worst most effective vectors of disease around the world.”

The mosquito is tiny and its bite is hardly noticeable. Unlike other mosquitoes, it bites during the day.

Another yellow fever mosquito was also discovered in Menlo Park last August.

Officials are asking homeowners in the area to check their yards for containers of standing water, including bird baths, so it can be eradicated quickly.


I checked the symptoms of Yellow Fever. According to the Centers for Disease Control:

  • The initial symptoms include sudden onset of fever, chills, severe headache, back pain, general body aches, nausea, and vomiting, fatigue, and weakness. Most persons improve after the initial presentation.
  • After a brief remission of hours to a day, roughly 15% of cases progress to develop a more severe form of the disease. The severe form is characterized by high fever, jaundice, bleeding, and eventually shock and failure of multiple organs.

No need to worry. Obamacare will take care of you.

    The only people that OC will take care of are the poor who cannot afford the premiums. We certainly would not want anybody with this disease to go untreated. I suspect that this mosquito got brought in with a food shipment from a foreign country along the line. Let’s hope they get a handle on it ASAP.

    Just another example of the wasted tax dollars going to worthless RAGWUS bureaucracies that are supposed to be providing a service but in reality are sitting behind a desk picking their collective noses!

    The RAGWUS feeders have developed a shadow government headed by public safety (the ones with the guns) followed by the state indoctrination bureau (the state schools). Most of their time is spent devising new schemes to steal from the private sector taxpayer, not what their title suggests. 🙂

      I would much rather identify with those you belittle “Ahaul” than the RAGWUS fools you defend. I never read about people in Oatman shooting teenage girls, or beating homeless men to death. 🙂
