An Update on the Tuberculosis Situation

As I haven’t bothered to write about it here, you’ve probably read something about the passenger who flew to and from Europe even though he knew he had a particularly awful strain of tuberculosis.  Before everyone gets into a giant uproar over this, this article should help clear things up a bit.  The good news:  you will probably not catch a particularly awful strain of tuberculosis if you fly.

  1. While I probably won’t catch it, Fox News had a report yesterday on how to find out if you’ve caught TB. I didn’t continue watching but the next report was probably how terrorists are looking to spread TB on airplanes and how it might be screened at the airport, followed by another report on how Democrats are weak on TB.

  2. Mitt Romney has really flip-flopped on TB.
