THE KwaZulu-Natal Health Department MEC Sibongiseni Dhlomo has raised concerns after the department established that many people around KwaZulu-Natal are contracting tuberculosis day by day, which leaves the department with a challenge to conduct more awareness campaigns.

“A lot of people in my organisation have been affected by TB and not only TB but HIV as well. They live in appalling conditions where hygiene is not practised at all which increases the risk of more people being infected. We try our best to conduct awareness campaigns and educate people about TB.”

HOW DO PEOPLE GET TB?

The disease is passed on from person to person. When a person who has TB coughs, sneezes or spits, germs are spread into the air from where they can be breathed in.
