Why is TB (tuberculosis) so unknown not recognised in the uk?, even though it?
can be a fatal disease and the effects on the individual are very painful in every aspect. Are there any runs or charities that show these people that they are aknowledged and supported? if not or few why is this?
The UK has been relatively free of TB for many years, the problem is now coming to the fore with many third world travellers coming into the country. The NHS will eventually wake up, but whether effectively or not - who knows?
Because of widespread vaccination most British people are very unlikely to contract TB. Unfortunatly this is not the case in third world and developing countries where TB is still a serious problem. There are charities concerned with the spread of TB such as this british charity: http://www.tbalert.org/
Please see the webpage for more details on Tuberculosis. Among black Africans in Britain TB rose by over 100% between the end of the 1980s and early 1990s. Tubercle bacillus is becoming drug resistant and the treatment is becoming difficult to cure. Medical cost is also increasing in geometric proportion.
I always thought that TB (prevention in particular) was very carefully watched in the UK - everyone I know has had their BCG shots, I've seen posters and emails alerting people to the disease and all UK universities screen their foreign students to ensure they've not got it before they can start their courses...
However, I think it's true that it's on the increase (possibly due to immigrants, though it can be spread by native wildlife too, so they can't take all the blame), and more effort ought to be made for those people who already have it.
Because most people have a vaccine as a teenager. I havnt had the vaccine however because i tested positive in the tests that they do first. so was on antibiotics for a while and never had the vaccine.
We've had NHS posters up in our college a while now letting people know the risks of TB and the symptoms. But maybe that's because the college i work at is in a poor area where we have a lot of new immigrants from all over the world who may be carriers. There needs to be a television campaign definitely. Because this is a risk I have to deal with every day as I have a customer facing role. The thing is when I applied for this role, they asked me all questions about whether I have suffered from TB, but they don't ask the students! So how are we supposed to know who has TB? We don't and therefore are put at risk of catching it every day! Its disgusting, but nothing will happen here until one of the members of staff do get it.
It really wasnâ€™t an issue until recently, as it had been eradicated in the UK - but it is becoming more prevalent again because of immigrants bringing it back into the country.
TB(tuberculosis) is every corner of world. It is also recognised in UK, although in very less percents. That disease is not painful and 100% curable if treated properly. TB is commonest among the people who lives in crowd and having poor nutrition. Only problem is multi drug resistant bacteria.
