When I was at school in Aberdeen ( I wished we'd stayed in England at that point), the city got quarantined because of an outbreak of typhoid from Argentinian corned beef ( they were out to get us even then). We had 10 weeks school summer holidays that year, we all also got obsessed with hand washing because that was preached at us all the time.
They just need to wash their hands and cook the chicken properly...no you cannot have 'medium rare' chicken ..................
That sounds like a scary experience. My brother had that when I was young. In those days they would put people in quarantine people until they were cured.
I always marvel at those who are willing to eat rare chicken. That is at least as dangerous as rare pork (at least you needn't worry about that). I also marvel at those who eat rare beef. Singe the outside and that kills all the bacteria there, and none will be inside. No. There may still be bacteria or worms or other parasites under the outside that was singed.
