Relationship Between The Incidence Of Typhoid Fever And Population Density?
Good afternoon doctor. R nDo I want to ask, what is the connection between typhoid fever and population density and minimal food processing?
Hello Mr. Ahmad Zarkasyi! Thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Typhoid fever is a disease caused by Salmonella typhi bacterial infection. Typhoid fever can spread through food and water contaminated with Salmonella typhi bacteria or close contact with infected patients. Patients will usually show symptoms of fever, headache, abdominal pain, and constipation (constipation) or diarrhea (liquid bowel movements). Living in a densely populated environment can make the spread of Salmonella typhi bacteria easier, so that more people can experience typhoid fever. Food or beverage processing that is not according to the standard can also cause the food or drink to be contaminated with Salmonella typhi bacteria, so that people who eat it can experience typhoid fever. If you or someone closest to you has typhoid fever, you should immediately see a doctor, especially an internist or pediatrician if the patient is a child. The doctor will provide appropriate treatment after the patient is examined. To avoid contracting typhoid fever, avoid hawking snacks in a place that is poorly maintained. Also keep your hands clean by washing your hands with soap before eating. Cook water until cooked before it is used as a drink or use bottled water that has been registered by the Indonesian Food and Drug Administration (BPOM RI).
That's all information from me. I hope this helps.
