I am informed a lot of people in countries like the us or uk probably wouldn't get typhoid, but if they did, what would be the course of treatment?

Typhoid: Typhoid fever is treated with antibiotics. Resistance to multiple antibiotics is increasing among Salmonella that cause typhoid fever. Choices for antibiotic therapy include fluoroquinolones, ceftriaxone, and azithromycin. Persons who do not get treatment may continue to have fever for weeks or months, and as many as 20% may die from complications of the infection.
