1 Answer:

Hello, thank you for the question separately HealthReplies.com

Basically, tuberculosis bacteria are only transmitted through droplets that fly in the air when tuberculosis sufferers cough, sneeze, scream, or sing. Until now there were no tuberculosis cases that were transmitted through contact with certain objects that were contaminated with phlegm.

If there is indeed paper that is affected by the sputum associated with tuberculosis, then you are advised to just throw the paper away. If indeed the paper cannot be thrown away, then clean the paper from sputum that is visible using a tissue, discard the tissue in a closed trash can, then wash your hands thoroughly with soap. Again, this bacterium is not transmitted through contact with objects so there is nothing you need to do with the paper.

So much information from me, hopefully enough answer
