Hello, I just visited my friend who was sick with tuberculosis, in the isolation room, but I forgot to bring a mask. Will you get the virus or not? I only briefly visited him

1 Answer:

Good evening, thanks for the question

Transmission of TB germs is through droplets or saliva splashes of patients who enter the airways of healthy individuals. The droplet transmission can occur when talking, coughing, sneezing, or throwing spit.

In your case the risk of transmission remains especially if the patient is undergoing the initial stages of treatment. But not all exposure to TB germs will cause TB sickness. TB germs will have to pass through the immune system first. If inhaled and the immune system does not succeed in getting rid of germs, the germs enter the lungs.

In most cases, inhaled bacteria will stay in the lungs without causing symptoms. Germs remain in the body, then when the immune system is low, the germs will infect so symptoms will occur.
To prevent transmission, as much as possible the immune system is always in good condition by eating healthy foods and exercising, improving air circulation in the home environment, and using adequate protection when in an environment at high risk of TB transmission.

That's all, hope you can help
Wassalam.
