The Health Department confirmed that a restaurant worker in Texas contracted typhoid.
The health department is not revealing very many details about the two cases. One challenge in combating the illness is some people don’t show symptoms for as many as 60 days.
Typhoid fever is miserable, and it’s also potentially deadly.
“Fever. 103-104 chills. Feeling ill. Abdominal pain,” explained Dr. Jaya Kumar, the chief medical officer for Medical City McKinney. “If untreated for several days or weeks, it can turn fatal where it will go to the brain. In about 30 percent of cases, it could be fatal.”
