Tuberculosis By: Adam sinker

It's spread when a person with active TB disease in their lungs coughs or sneezes and someone else inhales the expelled droplets, which contain TB bacteria

Some preventions are: Take all of your medicines as they’re prescribed, until your doctor takes you off them. Keep all your doctor appointments. Always cover your mouth with a tissue when you cough or sneeze. Seal the tissue in a plastic bag, then throw it away. Wash your hands after coughing or sneezing. Don’t visit other people and don’t invite them to visit you. Stay home from work, school, or other public places. Use a fan or open windows to move around fresh air. Don’t use public transportation.

Some preventions are: To cure the patient of TB and restore their quality of life and productivity; to prevent relapse of TB; to reduce the transmission of TB to others; to prevent the development and transmission of drug resistant TB
