Anyone can get TB. Famous people like former President Nelson Mandela, and Archbishop Emeritus Desmond Tutu have also had TB, but are now cured.
TB is spread when small droplets of spit are coughed into the air by people who have TB, and then breathed in by people who do not have TB. People who are on effective TB treatment cannot infect others.
TB is tuberculosis. It is a disease that usually affects the lungs, but it can also affect other parts of the body.
