What causes elevated WBC count while suffering from typhoid?

I recently had typhoid fever ,about three weeks ago to be exact. I now have a white blood cell count of 12500. Could it be possible that the high cell count is due to the typhoid fever I had. Also, I am not presenting fever or any other symptom of typhoid fever.
