Dry cough, loss of appetite, weight loss, diarrhea or constipation, rash and an extremely swollen stomach are the acute symptoms of typhoid fever A disease that spreads through sewage contamination of food or water and through person-to-person contact.

Droughts and water scarcity forces communities to resort to obtaining their water from shallow sources, that in all probability harbor pathogenic microbes such as typhoid; a bacterium called Salmonella typhi. Contaminated water sources and inadequately treated wastewater exacerbates the transmission of typhoid.

People who consume contaminated water or food that was rinsed with sullied water could develop typhoid disease. Other ways one can contract typhoid fever include: sharing a toilet contaminated with bacteria and touching your mouth before washing your hands or eating seafood from a water source spoiled by infected feces or urine.

The many challenges faced by Municipalities in ensuring proper wastewater treatment and disposal has been often overlooked, however, to protect communities from illness, organisations need to upgrade and modernise their drinking and wastewater infrastructure to provide adequate access to clean municipal water to help the population maintain a high level of hygiene and food safety, which empowers a decrease in the incidences of typhoid fever.
