Climate Crisis (scam) Could Maybe Possibly Increase African Yellow Fever Deaths By 25%

We could fix this with a tax, redistributing money from the 1st World, and restricting the type of power that Africans can use

Climate change could ‘increase yellow fever deaths in Africa by up to 25% by 2050’

An estimated 25% increase in deaths from yellow fever could be seen in Africa by 2050 due to climate change.

That’s according to a new study by the Imperial College London and the World Health Organisation (WHO), which forecasts some East African countries, including Ethiopia and Somalia, will face an increase because of the changing temperature and the frequent occurrence of rainfalls.

The scientific team modelled changes in temperature and rainfall across African countries under four climate change scenarios, with the best-case involving carbon dioxide emissions peaking by the 2030s and decreasing thereafter.

The worst case of the analysis was based on the hypothesis that carbon emissions will be steadily increasing throughout the century.

The modelling demonstrated by 2050 deaths could increase by around 11% for the best-case scenario and up to 25% for the worst-case scenario.

Modelling! Doom! Here’s what the World Health Organization has to say about Yellow Fever in their key facts

  • Yellow fever is an acute viral haemorrhagic disease transmitted by infected mosquitoes. The “yellow” in the name refers to the jaundice that affects some patients.
  • Symptoms of yellow fever include fever, headache, jaundice, muscle pain, nausea, vomiting and fatigue.
  • A small proportion of patients who contract the virus develop severe symptoms and approximately half of those die within 7 to 10 days.
  • The virus is endemic in tropical areas of Africa and Central and South America.
  • 27 countries are at highest risk for yellow fever epidemics in Africa. (that’s half the nations in the continent)
  • The burden of yellow fever in Africa is estimated at 84,000–170,000 severe cases and 29,000–60,000 deaths annually.
  • In 2016, during the two-linked urban yellow fever outbreaks – in Angola and DRC – 965 cases were confirmed and around 400 people died. The epidemic created an urgent need for more than 28 million doses of yellow fever vaccines total, which exhausted the existing global vaccine supply. It also diverted public health authorities from tackling other public health issues with an impact on health systems. Additionally, 11 cases were exported to China.
  • Since the launch of the Yellow Fever Initiative in 2006, significant progress in combatting the disease has been made in West Africa and more than 105 million people have been vaccinated in mass campaigns. No outbreaks of yellow fever were reported in West Africa during 2015.
  • Large epidemics of yellow fever occur when infected people introduce the virus into heavily populated areas with high mosquito density and where most people have little or no immunity, due to lack of vaccination. In these conditions, infected mosquitoes transmit the virus from person to person.
  • Yellow fever is prevented by an extremely effective vaccine, which is safe and affordable. A single dose of yellow fever vaccine is sufficient to confer sustained immunity and life-long protection against yellow fever disease and a booster dose of the vaccine is not needed. The vaccine provides effective immunity within 30 days for 99% of persons vaccinated.

So, the study is stating that because you drove a fossil fueled vehicle and eat burgers, there could be as many as 36,000-75,000 deaths per year, an extra 7,000-15,000. Perhaps instead of playing these games the Cult of Climastrology could invest in the vaccine for the estimated 440 million (overall for Africa and Central and South America) over the next 10 years. Because it has been warmer in Africa during previous Holocene warm periods than it is today. But, climate cultists have to scaremonger.

    Too bad there isn’t some cheap effective way to control the spread of mosquito-borne illnesses. I seem to remember that there was something about 100 years ago that did the trick, totally eliminating yellow fever and malaria in all of Europe, central America, and places that were “colonized” by Europeans. Then, “Poof”, as if by magic, that solution just went away and everyone let brown people die. Oddly enough, even brown people, let brown people die. It’s as if they didn’t think their lives mattered. At least not matter as much as a few species of song birds. Either way, Old white women with bird feeders in their gardens thank them for their sacrifice.

    Just kidding. The old white women don’t really care either.
