Avoid Typhoid Fever - admin - 10-05-2018

Typhoid is spread by contact and ingestion of infected human feces. This can happen through an infected water source or when handling food.

The following are some general rules to follow when traveling to help minimize the chance of typhoid infection:

Quote:Drink bottled water, preferably carbonated.
If bottled water cannot be sourced, ensure water is heated on a rolling boil for at least one minute before consuming.
Be wary of eating anything that has been handled by someone else.
Avoid eating at street food stands, and only eat food that is still hot.
Do not have ice in drinks.
Avoid raw fruit and vegetables, peel fruit yourself, and do not eat the peel.
