Salmonellosis, sometimes referred to as Salmonella, is an infectious disease in DayZ Standalone.


Invasiveness Average How quickly a disease grows and spreads in an infected host.
Infectiousness Very Low The ease at which a disease can spread from one Survivor to another.
Resistance No Effect A disease's resistance to antibiotics.
Potency Very Potent A disease's resistance and ability to fight the host's immune system.


Survivors in DayZ Standalone can become infected with Salmonella type bacteria by eating uncooked meat, uncooked fat, earthworms, any rotten food item or by drinking or eating with bloody hands. If the survivors immune system is weak enough, these actions will result in Salmonellosis.


Vomiting is the most common symptom of Salmonellosis. This can lead to severe hunger and dehydration.


Cooking meat before consumption will kill off the bacteria that cause Salmonellosis. Washing bloody hands before eating and drinking will remove the blood, preventing sickness. Not eating rotten food items or earthworms if not necessary

You can also eat Multivitamin Pills to keep your immune system strong.


You can eat Charcoal Tablets in order to get cured.

Eat and drink in small bites while sick to prevent vomiting.
