THE Ministry of Health will continue to monitor typhoid at Nanoko Village in Navosa, and Koroboya in Ba.
National adviser for Communicable Diseases Dr Mike Kama said the two areas would be closely monitored after a few cases were recorded in the Western Division early this year.
Dr Kama said the challenge for the ministry was to identify and treat all carriers who transmitted the disease.
"With regards to the typhoid cases that were identified in Nanoko and Koroboya in 2011 and 2012 respectively, the ministry together with other stakeholders worked together at that time and did the intervention which stopped the transmission," he said.
"The intervention was a success but that is not the end of the story. We are still recording at least one or two cases in the area.
"So this means that we need to monitor the areas and focus especially on the carriers.
"Once we identify these carriers, then we can find measures to stop the transmission."
Dr Kama said the monitoring process was part of the ministry's initiative to eliminate the disease.
