Typhoid fever is commonly found in contaminated food or drink and if you contract this, it can be fatal when correct treatment is not applied.
Often, it is the water supply in holiday resorts that become infected due to extremely poor levels of sanitation which, when consumed will result in typhoid fever. It is easily spread if people do not wash their hands after using the toilet and then go on to touch food and drink that is being prepared.
Symptoms can include:
- A high temperature
- A rash
- Stomach ache
