Why should we avoid standing


Why should we avoid standing dose to a tuberculosis patient while he/she is coughing?


Tuberculosis is an air-borne disease, which is easily spreads when the infected person coughs. As coughing spreads germs in the air and these

germs remain suspended in air until inhaled by person present in promixity of the patient who is suffering from the disease. That is why we should

avoid standing close to a TB patient.
