Occurs Only Where Regard
r. For Cleanliness is
-i Lacking, Shown
The prevalence or absence of
typhoid fever Is an. Index to con
dltions of sanitation and cleanli
ness, a bulletin issued ' by the
state board of health declares. As
a reason for this assertion, the
bulletin states- that , typhoid oc
cars only when doe regard la hot
given to sanitation. The discus
sion of typhoid, its causes and
cures, is as follows: j i
"At the present time it tan1 be
said that typhoid ' occurs1 only
when due retard is not given to
sanitation. The typhoid death
rates, therefore are regarded as
one of the most reliable indices of
sanitation and cleanliness. Tr
phoid fever is primarily an intes
tinal infection. The germ thrives
mainly-In the Intestinal tract of
humans and Is acquired by mai
section of Infected excreta Imm
either cases or carriers.
"It Is one disease tbat can be
prevented if everyone will coop
erate in righting- It. , , it occurs in
places where people are careless
about sewage disposal and about
keeping the water and milk sup
plies free from Infection, it aoes
not thrive in a community that Is
willing to spend money to protect
its citizens and that has an ac
tive and efficient .health admln-r
"Typhoid fever Is spread both
directly and indirectly from pa
tients and carriers. Water, milk,
butter, cheese, acd other milk
products, oysters and otber shell
fish, vegetables which are eaten
raw, other foods, fingers and fo
mltes may serve as vehicles of in
direct transmission. -The real
source ot Infection isJnan, and in
fections always arise through the
entrance of the discharges of a
ease of typhoid fever or of a car
rier into the body of another In
dividual. Every case of typhoid
comes from someone's Ignorance
or neglect. . 4 . '
fWater-borne epidemics Pre
sent, certain definite i character
istics. The epidemics occurring
during the cold months rise to a
peak and decline rapidly. Due to
a rather direct transfer of fresh
virulent material, the cases are
severe. The cases are found dis
tributd among the users of a Sir
en water supply and there is lit
tle regard for age or sex. Epi
demiological proof of water as
the source of typhoid epidemics
restg in circumstantial evidence.
It is difficult to isolate typhoid
bacilli from either water or milk.
"Since water supplies have
been largely improved, milk has
probably .been the most common
cause in the .tran&mislson of the
disease. It offers numerous Op
portunities, for contamination.- j
Milk la an excellent culture me-!
dium and even slight contamina
tion becomes massive In a very
short time. Milk-borne epidemics
usually follow certain milk routes
and are found mostly among wo
men and children or at least
among those who usually drink
milk In the raw. condition. " The
cases are inclined to be mild due
to the fact .that tbe germs have
grown several generations in an 4
artificial culture medium. Mils
borne epidemics can usually be
traced to carriers, convalescents
or ambulatory cases of typhoid
who have had some part In the
handling of milk. A great number
of foods may become contamin
ated by the fingers of persons
who carry the infection, foods
may also be contaminated by
flies, as the typhoid germ can re
main aive in tbe intestinal tract
of the fly. -
"Typhoid is preventable In
two ways, by stopping the spread
of the germ and by inoculation.
The spread of the germ is pre
vented by the early diagnosis' of
typhoid, isolation of the patient,
and by the disinfection of all
discharges and all artless used by
patient Water, milk, and food
supplies must be i properly safe
guarded. All persons planning to
travel In countries or spend va
cations in places where sanitation
Is neglected should be Inoculated
against the disease." .;
