Good evening, thanks for the question
Tuberculosis (TB) is a direct infectious disease caused by TB bacteria, Mycobacterium tuberculosis. Most TB germs attack the lungs, but can also affect other organs. Because it is called an infectious disease due to bacterial infection in the airways, in other words the transmission is not in a way that does not allow the transmission of germs, including through exposure to vapors from paint.
TB germs spread through coughing, sneezing, or talking with sprinkling of spit by TB sufferers, wherein bacteria will pass through the spit to fly into the air and can be inhaled by others. If the body's immune system cannot fight the infection, the bacteria can multiply in the body to cause symptoms.
It should be emphasized that TB is not transmitted through physical contact, such as a handshake, touching the patient's personal equipment, or sharing food and drink with the patient.
Patients are strongly advised to undergo routine and obedient treatment to reduce the potential for germ transmission, relieve symptoms, eradicate germs completely, and prevent complications.
That's all, hope you can help
