Tuberculosis (TB) is an infection caused by a bacteria known as Mycobacterium tuberculosis. The bacteria mostly affect the lungs although it can affect other body parts. How is the infectious condition transmitted (i.e. modes of transmission)? Tuberculosis spreads from one person to another through air hence contagious. When a TB patient sneezes coughs or spits they release the germs into the air. The people who will inhale the air will probably become infected. Explain the phases The disease undergoes three main phases namely the early infection stage of face masks to avoid inhaling the bacteria. People are advised to know their risks because there are circumstances which increase the probability of spreading TB. Individuals with other infection with weak immune system especially the HIV patients are very delicate health practitioners families of TB patients drug abusers or people who spend most of their time in crowded places have higher chances of getting the infection.
