A treatment for typhus
The types of typhus
Typhus is also found a lot in poor countries, because of sanitary conditions - if they cannot clean themselves contamination can easily occur and this can lead to death.
Typhus killed more than 3 million soldiers during the revolutionary period after WWI.
Murine typhus also called endemic typhus and is a mild form of the disease. It is transmitted to people by rat flea, but it does not spread as quickly as epidemic typhus.
