Tuburcolosis

Good Day,
We just heard that one of our co-workers is hospitilized with advanced stage of TB. We tried to phone the clinic but they want us to wait for symptoms before we go for tests, and we are afraid that in waiting for that we might infect our other family members. How can we go about this matter?

Mina, you can ask your doctor to do a PPD test. It will tell you whether you are immune or not and whether you have contracted TB or not. Good luck.
