You are confused. Typhus and typhoid are very different diseases.

Typhus is spread by lice, the results of unclean living conditions, which are of course very difficult to maintain in wartime. The logistics of using it as a weapon of war are obvious.

Typhoid is a water/food borne disease, spread by these things contaminated with the feces of an infected person. It would also be difficult to use as a weapon of war.

Bitter enemies are often accused of spreading such diseases via spies or agents, but doing so isn’t particularly practical.

Thanks for correction, it was an error in translation on my side.

The fact that bitter enemies accuse each other does not mean that it is not true, nor that both accusations are accurate.

Take for example recent Sarin attack in Syria. Perpetrated by the British mercs and AQ against Syrian civilians.

UKUSA blame Syrian goverment, although they have the hard facts, like the rest of the world. Syria blames AQ terrorists affiliated with UKUSA but has no 00 to blame UKUSA.

One could say they are blaming each other, which is not true, one side is making false accusation to protect it's actions, another is pointing in the right direction.

Ditto for Halabja when Iran was accused although having nothing to do with it.
