“Fatal Fever Tracking Down Typhoid Mary” is written by Gail Jarrow.  Here is an overview of how they tracked where typhoid had come from and how people found out about how the sickness traveled around and killed lots of people.

“Fatal Fever Tracking Down Typhoid Mary” by Gail Jarrow talks about the outbreak in 1907 of typhoid fever and “Typhoid Mary”. This book explains how healthy people can still carry bad diseases and infect other people. Healthy people can still carry bad diseases because the victims of typhoid fever can become immune to typhoid.  The meaning of this book is that they want people to know how important it is to follow and cooperate with the government regulations because they are studying the diseases and finding a cure. In this day we are living in a pandemic and still, we have people who do not listen or even do not even care about what the government has to say.

I really recommend this book because first students can learn about the the1907 outbreak of typhoid fever in this book there is a perfect historical perspective of the Covid-19/Coronavirus pandemic that is happening in our world today, and also in this book, there is a glossary, timeline, and a list of well-known typhoid sufferers and victims so people can learn a lot in this book. I learned that not only we need to listen to government regulations, but we also have to beware of what we do and what we have in our own bodies.

Something I learned in this unit is if I really concentrate to read non-fiction books and read the text, I will gain a deeper understanding of the book’s meaning and I can learn new and more stuff with just reading a book. Before I use to think that reading non-fiction books were lame and boring but, now I think it is really interesting and can teach me things.
