Tuberculosis is a serious contagious disease, which can be fatal if not treated in time. Even today tuberculosis is responsible for more than a million deaths worldwide ...

More than a third of the world's population currently has latent tuberculosis, which means that people have been infected with the tuberculosis bacteria but have not yet developed the disease and therefore cannot transmit it.

Tuberculosis is an infectious disease caused by a mycobacterium called Koch's bacillus (BK). Although all organs can be affected, tuberculosis most often affects the lung, which is why it is transmitted from person to person through the air. The other locations of the disease ("extra-pulmonary", it affects the lymph nodes, urinary system, joints, etc.), more frequent among migrants from West Africa and South Asia, are only exceptionally contagious.
