At least 18 people have been tested positive   of Typhoid Fever in Mchinji over the past week, authorities say.

According to Mchinji District Hospital Public Relations Officer Frank Kaphaso Nyasulu, all cases have been recorded in three villages that are in Traditional Authority (T.A.) Zulu’s area.

Nyasulu said hospital workers went to the villages and took blood samples of the 18 people.

He added that villages where the cases have been recorded had poor hygiene and gave the example of Kangwere Village where only 11 out of the 35 houses the hospital workers visited had toilets.

Meanwhile the hospital is conducting sensitisation meetings in the area to advise people on the need of following good hygiene practices to prevent the disease from spreading further.

Among other things, the hospital is encouraging people to go for testing when they feel malaria symptoms saying typhoid symptoms are mistaken for Malaria.
