Typhoid is caused by a bacteria. It is spread through taking contaminated food and water. It will cause fever, vomiting, headache. So it is better to take boiled water and not to eat outside too often

Shall I add one good point here, my doctor said the person who suffered from typhoid is likely to shed the bacteria and spread to other people for 15 days. So ask your family and friends to wash their hands thoroughly before eating anything for next 15 days.
