Tuberculosis or TB is considered an ancient disease. It has continued to resist the drugs made to eradicate it completely. Just like other diseases, it comes back once in a while to remind people about its existence. Its story sounds familiar and you know what I mean. The measles virus is back. It’s supposed to be erased out of its existence completely since the year 2000.
TB Is caused by mycobacterium tuberculosis bacilli. That’s a mouthful. Transmission mainly is by airborne. Acquiring the disease is by inhaling droplets of people who are infected by it.
