An illness that is caused by Salmonella Typhi is called typhoid, named after the bacterium. Clearly, this is a contagious disease. Hence, contact with any object that is contaminated by the bacterium results in the disease. Fever with very high temperatures (103°F -104 °F) is the main symptom. Other symptoms include headache, stomach pain, paleness etc. The disease can be diagnosed only after detecting the bacterial presence in blood or stool.
