This story seems to say that the species of mosquito that can carry yellow fever has been found, but that the virus itself has not been found. Is this correct?

Where were these found? Anyone know? What about ponds and waterways, such as MP Baylands park?

Chuck...that is correct. There was an erroneous report that mosquitoes positive for Yellow Fever had been found, but the word "positive" in the current situation is referring to traps and sites positive for the presence of Aedes aegypti.
