State health officials have been investigating a Tuberculosis cluster in Grand Forks. Ten people have been diagnosed with the disease. More cases are expected.
Dee Pritschet is with North Dakota Department of Health Division of Disease Control. She discusses some concerns about the outbreak with Marci Narum on KX News at 5:00.
The news has raised many questions and concerns:
Isn't this something that people only "used to" get?
Why is it appearing now?
What is it, in simple terms?
Based on symptoms, how does a person know it's not just a cold or the flu, and should see a doctor?
Who is at greatest risk?
And with the TB cluster in the Grand Forks area, should people in other parts of the state be concerned about the disease spreading?
