Synopsis

Typhoid Fever, a bacteria infection caused by Salmonella typhi and spread by poor hygiene practices (read - feces contamination of food or water). Mary Mallon, later known as Typhoid Mary, was the first person traced and identified as spreading the disease. A cook in the New York City area, Mary was associated with 53 cases of typhoid, and 3 deaths, and although she was told to give up cooking she would disappear and assume alternate identities, reappearing to cook for new families and exposing them to the disease.
