The Truth about Tuberculosis
What do you know about Tuberculosis? Find out what it’s all about.
Tuberculosis is a bacterial infection that affects the lungs but can also affect other parts of the body. So, how would you know if you have it? The symptoms include chronic cough with bloody mucus, fever, and night sweats while its other common symptom is weight loss which is why people used to call it “consumption”.
Tuberculosis can be transmitted to another person by coughing and sneezing and massive people have been affected and died because of it as it is one of the world’s deadliest and most communicable diseases.
However, not everything that we know about it is true so let’s all find out the common misconceptions of people about Tuberculosis.
People with Tuberculosis are infected
The infection can only be transmitted if they develop symptoms and when the bacteria are in the lungs or throat. While, if the bacteria is in other parts of the body, the disease is most unlikely to be transmitted.
Tuberculosis is genetic
The gene is not highly responsible for causing it rather some genes might influence someone to transition from a latent infection to an active infection
There is no cure for Tuberculosis
Tuberculosis is treatable. People diagnosed with it should take a prescribed drug every day for at least 6-9 months to fight off the infection.
