Tuberculosis scare in a school in Sète

France 3/Scoop, Jul 5

Earlier this week, a mother contacted the director at the Georges-Brassens school, stating that her daughter might have tuberculosis.

The director immediately called for medical aid to examine the child, and as a precaution several children in the school were also asked to have lung x-rays to be certain that they were not affected.

Tuberculosis is caused by bacteria that spread from person to person through microscopic droplets released into the air. This can happen when someone with the untreated, active form of tuberculosis coughs, speaks, sneezes, spits, laughs or sings. Although tuberculosis is contagious, it’s not easy to catch.

The children were given the all-clear.
