Traduction en anglais : Employees and regular customers in restaurants and discos as multiplicators of tuberculosis.
It is often maintained that tuberculosis is a disease affecting only individuals and that it scarcely causes epidemics any longer.
Public health authorities state that this notion needs to be considerably corrected.
Precisely because the incidence of tuberculosis has, to a large extent, been declining over past decades, the point in time for initial infection has been largely pushed back into the middle-aged group.
In particular, alcoholics and those with a weakened immune system are subject to tuberculosis diseases, which represent a risk for contact persons.
Those most at risk are young people whose immune system has never had to combat TB.
Above all, if an unknown bacterial source, a regular customer, a waiter or disc jockey, coughs in a restaurant or disco, there can easily be a small or even large epidemic of tuberculosis.
