Is typhoid deadly?
Without prompt medical treatment, typhoid and paratyphoid fevers can be fatal.
Treatment for typhoid may include:
• Hospitalisation for specialised medical care
• Antibiotics to kill the bacteria, reduce the risk of complications, and speed recovery
• Fluids to prevent dehydration caused by diarrhoea and fever.
