Typhoid Breaks Out In Coshocton

Feb. 3, 1912--A Coshocton child contracted typhoid back in the day when typhoid was a more common ailment(when was the last time you heard about somebody contracting typhoid?).

You contract typhoid through sewage contact (this is why your mother told you not to play in the sewers) or it's passed by a lifetime typhoid carrier like typhoid Mary Mallon. You can avoid typhoid by, according to the CDC, avoiding risky food/drink (think Calcutta street vendor cuisine) and getting vaccinated.

One more thing kiddies: wash your hands and never swim at a sewage treatment plant.
