2. TB (Bacterial Outbreak)
Tuberculosis (sometimes commonly referred to as TB for short) is one of the most commonly occurring diseases in the world, and it has potentially affected millions of people worldwide:
The rate of tuberculosis infections is increasing, partially due to the fact that many people don’t have access to treatment (or don’t know to start it) and additionally due to the fact that many individuals don’t finish their course of anti-tuberculosis treatment.
Symptoms of a TB infection include coughing that lasts for several weeks to months at a time, eventually coughing up blood and a constant fever together with night sweats: What most people don’t realize is that there are also several types of TB in existence, and it can affect all of the tissue in the body that aren’t the lungs and make its way up to the brain.
If you suspect that you or someone you know has TB, seek immediate treatment and complete the course as directed.
