Salmonellosis, also known as Salmonella, is a bacteria that affects the intestines. This disease is very common, and you can get it by eating contaminated or raw food, or dirty water. In your case, the chicken and the vegetables you ate for lunch contained the bacteria and now it is living in your digestive system. That is why you have all of those symptoms.
About 1.2 million people are affected by salmonella annually in the US. Around 450 people die from this disease. Approximately 93.8 million people are affected by salmonella globally each year, with around 155,000 deaths from this disease a year.

You, Ms. Lee, can help by keeping Sara away from Poultry, beef, milk, and eggs. Most people only need fluids to recover in less than a week.
