Our expert says:
Carriers of salmonella will only infect other people if they don't wash their hands well after using the bathroom. And then not everyone that ingests Salmonella bacteria will become ill. If you never had diarrhoeal symptoms since eating at the hotel it is unlikely that you will be typhoid positive. (Typhoid fever is a bacterial infection of the intestinal tract and bloodstream. Symptoms can be mild or severe and include sustained fever as high as 39°-40° C, flu like feeling, loss of appetite, headache, constipation or diarrhoea, rose-coloured spots on the chest area and enlarged spleen and liver. Most people show symptoms 1-3 weeks after exposure. Paratyphoid fever has similar symptoms to typhoid fever but is generally a milder disease.)
I would advise that the baby should be tested.
