Tuberculosis is a highly contagious infectious disease caused by a bacterium. It generally attacks the lungs.
Tuberculosis is a serious disease caused by a bacterium known as Koch's bacillus in honour of the man who first identified it. In several countries around the world, particularly throughout Africa, Asia and the Middle East, tuberculosis is a deadly disease that kills millions of people each year. Canada however, has one of the lowest rates of tuberculosis on the planet. That being said, it is in our best interest to remain alert.
