    TB is a highly contagious bacterial infection that can quickly spread if not caught, isolated, and treated early. Tuberculosis is an airborne disease, and can be caught by breathing in the air that an infected person has contaminated through: Breathing. Coughing.


    Hope you saw a doctor back then.

    TB was reported just this week at Fresno City College and about 300 students, likely exposed, were notified by email to be tested. (5/4/16).


    Get the kids tested, as TB can kill.

    A lot of people have been exposed to tb  and don't develop problems. Treatment is available and successful. Just get the test done and see if you have been exposed if your concerned.

    that's true. I worked with nurses who tested positive b/c they were exposed to it but didn't have it. My aunt too.
