Wanted: Typhoid Fever
Also goes by the name of Salmonella Typhimurium
The bacterium can either infect the circulatory system, or the digestive system.
The bacterium is transmitted by consuming foods or drinks contaminated with the bacteria.
Chefs working in developing countries have a good chance of being attacked, for they might taste food that is used by contaminated water.
The bacterium is also wanted for damaging the victim by causing ulcers and bleeding in the bowel, and also by causing osteitis, cholecytis, and hepatitis in rare cases.
- Raw Foods
- Contaminated Water
The bacterium also hides out in developing countries, so the more industrialized, the less chance of getting the Salmonella Typhimurium bacteria.
To prevent an attack, be sure to be vaccinated with the ViCPS, or the Ty21a vaccinations. Also be sure to wash hands and raw foods thoroughly before eating. (Veggies, fruits, raw meat)
Treatments that are used are mostly antibiotics, with a long list of them which will be listed below. In some extreme cases, the gallbladder can become so infected that it has to be removed, but that situation is not very common.
