Tuberculosis (TB)

Tuberculosis is a contagious bacterial infection of the lungs that can be spread through the air when a person speaks, coughs, or sneezes. Within the last year, there were 8,916 reported cases of TB in the United States, as well as 13 million people living with latent tuberculosis. People with HIV, babies and young children, and older adults continue to have a higher risk of getting the disease.
