    • C.

      Water Borne

    • D.

      Food Borne

    Correct Answer
    B. Airborne
    Explanation
    Tuberculosis is spread through the air when an infected person coughs, sneezes, or talks, releasing tiny droplets containing the bacteria into the air. These droplets can be inhaled by others, leading to the transmission of the disease. This mode of transmission is known as airborne spread. It is important to note that tuberculosis is not spread through direct contact or through water or food, but primarily through the respiratory route.

    Rate this question:

  • 9. 

    Tuberculosis can cause symptoms such as: persistent cough, night sweats, weight loss, anorexia and fever when the disease is:

    • A.

      Latent

    • C.

      Active

    • D.

      Not vaccinated

    Correct Answer
    C. Active
    Explanation
    When tuberculosis is active, it means that the bacteria causing the disease are actively multiplying in the body and causing symptoms. These symptoms include a persistent cough, night sweats, weight loss, anorexia, and fever. In contrast, latent tuberculosis refers to a situation where the bacteria are present in the body but are not causing any symptoms or spreading the disease. Dormant is a term that can be used interchangeably with latent in this context. Not being vaccinated against tuberculosis does not determine whether the disease is active or not.
