In addition to the coronavirus, another bacterial infection has started in America. This bacterium called Salmonella Newport is spreading from onions. The state of Michigan has already infected 38 people with the virus.

According to the CDC, 38 people have been infected with Salmonella Newport caused by onions in Michigan. Federal and state health officials are investigating the cause of the onion-related disease. So far, 640 people have been infected in 43 US states. People of all ages of children are being infected.

Experts believe that the red onion was initially supplied by a company called Thomson International. Health officials say onions cannot be sold or eaten without knowing where they are coming from. These warnings include red, yellow, white, and sweet onions.

Ferdous Khandaker, a doctor of Bangladeshi descent, said Salmonella is a bacterium that causes typhoid. These germs are dangerous for humans. Salmonella bacterial infections usually cause problems such as fever, diarrhea, and abdominal pain. From six hours to six days after the bacteria becomes infected in the body, these symptoms gradually become apparent. The effects of this infection are usually noticed within four to seven days. For this reason, everyone must be careful.
