Typhoid outbreak in Dublin

Published: 19 July 1913

Six people have been admitted to hospital suffering from typhoid. All of them lived in Henrietta Street, and they are being treated at Cork Street Fever Hospital. It is also reported that a smaller outbreak has been noted in Lower Sheriff Street, but this has yet to be confirmed by health officials. The outbreak is believed to be a result of the poor sanitation and living standards in Henrietta Street.
