TB in Genesee
(2007-06-05)
(wgvu) - The Genesee County Health Department says
two Flint-area children have tested positive for tuberculosis.
Skin tests were conducted in April and May on 163 people
identified as close contacts of a person with an active case of T-B
at Flint Central High School.
Eighty-three of them have completed testing. The remaining 80
haven't been fully evaluated. They're being encouraged to complete
testing at one of the health department's three clinics.
The department isn't saying if the two children who tested
positive infected were students at Central High School.
Tuberculosis is a contagious, potentially fatal disease of the
lungs.
