Hi.


TB is a disease caused by infection with the bacterium Mycobacterium tuberculosis. TB can infect at any age, and TB can also infect organs such as the lungs, bones, lymph nodes, and brain.


Pulmonary tuberculosis is transmitted through breathing air and splashes of phlegm. Pulmonary tuberculosis can be transmitted if exposed to respiratory air from the patient, especially when treatment is still less than 2 months. At the time of initial treatment, TB is usually still contagious, and then later after the advanced phase of treatment (in the 3rd month), TB transmission usually does not occur.


Therefore, you can visit your girlfriend, but it is recommended that you use a mask when close to your boyfriend to reduce the risk of TB transmission. Use a mask with a good type of N95 for filtering.
