TB or not TB, that is the question

on .

A series of events are taking place across Birmingham to screen eligible people who may be carrying TB without them knowing it.

If people aged 16-35 were born in one of the 70 at risk countries, or have lived there for more than six months in the last five years, they could have the tuberculosis (TB) bacteria ‘sleeping’ inside them, otherwise known as latent TB.

The 70 countries include Thailand, India and the Philippines.
