Dr Selahuddeen said TB was caused by Mycobacterium tuberculosis bug.
The disease is transmitted through the mouth and nose of the TB patients when they sniff, talk or sneeze.Patients who have been diagnosed with TB should seek urgent medical care and take the TB medicine according to the recommendations of the attending physician
TB patients should be treated immediately to ensure they do not spread the disease to others
“TB is one of the most contagious diseases and must be reported to the Health Department. We will constantly monitor any reported incident
“I would like to reiterate to the public that the message is fake
"The public should not spread or easily fall for such news to avoid panic and confusion, ” he added
Dr Selahudeen's statement came following a viral message on Facebook which shared a screenshot of a conversation about an outbreak of TB in Kampung Melayu Majidee Baru and Kampung Melayu Pandan.- Star
