What is Yellow Fever and how do we get it:

The disease is caused by the yellow fever virus.

Yellow fever begins after an incubation period of three to six days. Yellow fever virus is transmitted to people primarily through the bite of infected Aedes or Haemagogus species mosquitoes.Yellow Fever Risk Areas

Some countries demand a yellow fever certificate from travellers as a condition of entry to their country. There is a list of countries affected by Yellow Fever and it is necessary to be vaccinated at least 10 days before travelling to these countries. If you have been in those countries before and you intend to travel to a country not affected by the virus, you will need a certificate that you have had the vaccine, before you will be permitted into their countries.

Symptoms of Japanese Encephalitis (JE):

Most cases only cause a mild infection with fever, headache, chills, back pain, fatigue, loss of appetite, muscle pain, nausea, and vomiting.[13] In these cases, the infection lasts only three to four days.

In 15% of cases, however, people enter a second, toxic phase of the disease with recurring fever, this time accompanied by jaundice due to liver damage, as well as abdominal pain. Bleeding in the mouth, the eyes, and the gastrointestinal tract cause vomit containing blood, hence the Spanish name for yellow fever, vómito negro ("black vomit").
