What is Tuberculosis?


Tuberculosis (TB) is an infectious disease usually caused by the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis (MTB). Tuberculosis generally affects the lungs, but can also affect other parts of the body. Most infections do not have symptoms, in which case it is known as latent tuberculosis. TB is spread through the air, when people whom already have active TB in their lungs, meaning when coughing & sneezing. Around 30% of the world population (1.7 billion people) is estimated to harbour M. tuberculosis infection. People with pulmonary tuberculosis 8-15% with also have urogenital tuberculosis. It affects more men than women (2:1). Tuberculosis prevention, rely primarily on the vaccination of infants, in 2011 a vaccine called BCG Bacillus Calmette–Guérin was used against tuberculosis. As tuberculosis is uncommon in most of Canada, the United Kingdom, and the United States, BCG is administered to only those people at high risk, including those who work directly with people who may be infected.
