Salmonellosis, sometimes referred to as Salmonella, is an infectious disease in DayZ Standalone.

Virulence[edit | edit source]

Invasiveness Average How quickly a disease grows and spreads in an infected host.
Infectiousness Very Low The ease at which a disease can spread from one Survivor to another.
Resistance No Effect A disease's resistance to antibiotics.
Potency Very Potent A disease's resistance and ability to fight the host's immune system.

Cause[edit | edit source]

Survivors in DayZ Standalone can become infected with Salmonella type bacteria by eating raw, uncooked meat. If the survivors immune system is weak enough, this infection can result in Salmonellosis.

Symptoms[edit | edit source]

Vomiting is the most common symptom of Salmonellosis. This can lead to severe hunger and dehydration.

Prevention[edit | edit source]

Cooking meat before consumption will kill off the bacteria that cause Salmonellosis. Washing your hands will also get rid of the blood, and prevent getting sick.

Treatment[edit | edit source]

There is no treatment for Salmonellosis. A survivor that has become infected will have to fight off the infection naturally. It is recommended that the survivor consume plenty of food and water to offset the water and energy loss from vomiting.
