I got TB 1 year Back, It took me 6 months to recover. For 2 Months I
was not allowed to meet anyone. My Clothes and everything I used was
not even touched by other. I had a bed rest of 2-3 months. Then after
6 months I got OK.

It spreads very fast. And lot of medicines are needed and all have to
be taken in time. I took them for 6 months. %0% people who get TB die
because of not proper treatment. I was lucky that my TB was detected
in early stage else today I would not have been writing here.

Bye

Thanks for sharing that Sanny. Are you in India? The World Health
Organization said that was one place it was a larger problem.

I wanted to add one more defensive option for the player who is
determined to avoid communicable diseases: goggles for eye protection.
Many of the diseases that are spread via aerosols and droplets, from
sneezing and the like, can infect through the eyes as well as the nose
and mouth. Inexpensive goggles can prevent that.

Too little, too late.

In many hospitals, the air conditioning in the emergency room is not
segregated from the air conditioning in the rest of the building.
Street people with TB often take only enough meds to alleviate
symptoms; in other words, they do their best to create drug resistant
strains. Then, when they come back to the ER, it spreads all through
the hospital. In some NYC hospitals, almost all the staff show
antibodies to TB.

Nice point. In addition, with the lousy health care system in the US,
many people will not even go to the ER or the doctor when they are sick.

There are areas of the world where TB is a much more serious problem
than others. Also, TB is known to have a synergistic effect with HIV
each increasing the deadliness of the other. Here is a fact sheet about
TB from the WHO.

http://www.who.int/mediacentre/factsheets/fs104/en/index.html

On the topic of shaking hands, I just learned that, though rare,
syphillis can be spread by handshake. If you contract it this way, try
explaining that to the wife... If you see someone with open sores on
their hands, syphillis chancres are one possibility. It is also
possible to pick it up from dirty towels... Other diseases passed along
this way include flesh eating bacteria, athlete's foot, impetigo, and warts.
