  • So many people can't take detect tuberculosis, because they believe it's a normal cough that will go with time. Some involve themselves in self medication, and that's why the disease keeps spreading. We should be conscious of different symptoms concerning cough, a visit to the doctor once any irregular symptom is noticed should be taken seriously.

  • There is no doubt that tuberculosis is a dreadful disease. Tuberculosis is tackled better, when it is attended to at its early symptoms. Proper care should be taken in order not to spread the disease across to other people. The point is; early tackle, effective response, then proper living style.

  • Tuberculosis is a very common illness people are very much aware of. It can easily be contracted when an infected person releases its spores of bacteria either by coughing or sneezing and the spores enter into an uninfected person.

    Therefore it is highly important that people ensure that they cover their nose and close their mouth whenever someone coughs. 

    Also tuberculosis test should be carried out once every six months to be sure that you are not a carrier and that you don't have the fever.
