Typhoid fever is a bacterial disease caused by Salmo blue typhus. Typhoid fever is a major threat in some developed countries. Only a healthy and fit person can do all his work well. The disease in any condition makes the person restless and his normal activities stop.
Seasonal fever is not a big deal. People get better soon but typhoid fever is a deadly disease and it is a contagious disease.
Typhoid is caused by a bacterium called Salmo blue typhus. A person with typhoid fever has a body temperature of 103 to 104 degrees Fahrenheit. Most of the attacks of this disease occur. In addition, dirty water also causes typhoid. The germs can be transmitted from a typhoid patient to another healthy person and they can also be infected.
