More Yellow Fever - in Paraguay!

Paraguay has declared a state of emergency this past week amid a nationwide crisis about an outbreak of yellow fever, the first since 1974. This comes right on the heels of another health alert declared last month due to a suspected outbreak of dengue.

At least 160,000 people have been vaccinated in the last few days, but people are already rioting at health centers. Paraguay's neighbor, Brazil, is in the midst of a yellow fever outbreak as well.

Sheesh.
