Recent panic arose when a passenger loaded a plane while sick with Tuberculosis.
But was there really a reason to panic? Can you get TB from flying?

Tuberculosis is a contagious airborne bacterial infection that involves your lungs primarily, but may spread to other organs.
Dr. Greg Moran joins Dr. Leigh and helps clear the air about the infection known as TB and what your actual risk factors truly are.
