Article excerpts about the
causes of Yellow fever:
All flaviviruses (e.g.,
West Nile [shown here], St. Louis encephalitis, dengue, Japanese encephalitis,
tick-borne encephalitis, yellow fever, etc.) share a common size (40-60nm),
symmetry (enveloped, icosahedral nucleocapsid), nucleic acid (positive-sense,
single stranded RNA approximately 10,000-11,000 bases), and appearance
in the electron microscope. Therefore, images of West Nile virus are representative
for this group of viruses. (Source: excerpt from West Nile Virus Virology: DVBID)
