Tuberculosis

This disease is one of the worst diseases in the world.
1/3 of the world has been proven to have tuberculosis, and only a small proportion will end up with TB. If you already have a big disease like HIV or cancer then you are more likely to get tuberculosis. They are still looking for a cure.
Health-care workers are at risk for being infected with the tuberculosis bacilli.

They are often exposed to diagnosed tuberculosis patients, and those that work in prisons or shelters may be working under condition's that are poorly ventilated.
