What Is Typhoid?

Typhoid fever is a systemic bacterial infection caused by Salmonella Typhi, that is transmitted via the consumption of contaminated food or water. Travelers to South Asia, especially India, Pakistan, and Bangladesh, should take precautions to prevent infection with the vaccination. Its symptoms include intestinal bleeding, pneumonia, seizures, brain swelling, and toxic heart disease. The only way to confirm if an illness is Typhoid is to have samples of blood or stool tested for the presence of Salmonella Typhi.

What Is Hepatitis A?

Hepatitis A is a viral infection that is transmitted via contaminated water and food and causes inflammation of the liver. Hepatitis A is a disease that occurs all around the world especially in countries where sanitation conditions are poor such as Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. Common symptoms of Hepatitis A include nausea, vomiting, weight loss, muscle pain, fever, and jaundice.
