PRETORIA - South Africa has not issued an advisory to its citizens traveling to Angola, where 37 people have died of yellow fever this year, and at least eight new cases have been reported in the past 24 hours.

Travelers from the Southern African oil power are required to present yellow fever vaccination certificates when entering South Africa.

Angola is dealing with at least 200 new yellow fever infections in the capital Luanda.

The oil rich country is suffering reduced revenues from the black stuff because of a price slump.

Government is letting slide on public sanitation and garbage removal, giving free rein to the mosquitoes carrying yellow fever.

Angola is one of 30 African countries along with 13 south and Central American nations on the list requiring yellow fever vaccination certificates for travellers entering South Africa.

Failure to provide a certificate renders one liable for a six day quarantine before being allowed in.
