PARATYPHOID FEVER
On 13th September, a message was received from the infectious diseases unit
of a local hospital that a young woman, resident in the Borough, who had been
admitted there three days previously had been diagnosed as suffering from
Paratyphoid B. fever.
She had returned from Turkey with her husband on 2nd September, and took up
her duties as a schoolteacher on 5th September. She was only back at school two
or three days before falling sick.
Her only close contacts were her husband (a medical student) and her brother
(a school teacher) who did not go to Turkey. These were supervised by the
hospital treating the patient, and did not develop the disease.
With the co-operation of the head teachers, of the schools at which the
patient and her brother taught, cases of absence from school of staff and pupils
in the following three weeks were investigated, but no secondary cases occurred.
