    CHECK THE CORRECT CAUSES OF TUBERCULOSIS

    • A.

      Cough

    • B.

      Sneeze

    • C.

      Sexual transmission

    • D.

    • E.

      Touch

    Correct Answer(s)
    A. Cough
    B. Sneeze
    D. Lymph
    Explanation
    Tuberculosis is primarily caused by the Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria, which can be transmitted through respiratory droplets when an infected person coughs or sneezes. These droplets contain the bacteria and can be inhaled by others, leading to infection. The lymphatic system can also play a role in the spread of tuberculosis, as the bacteria can travel through the lymph nodes and infect other parts of the body. Therefore, coughing, sneezing, and lymphatic transmission are correct causes of tuberculosis.

    Correct Answer
    B. False
    Explanation
    The statement is false. The question asks if it is true that only 21% of the people infected may develop the disease. However, the answer is false, indicating that it is not true. This means that the statement is incorrect and the percentage of people infected who may develop the disease is not 21%.

  • 5. 

    HOW DO YOU DETECT THE DISEASE?

    • A.

      Saliva sample

    • B.

      Urine test

    • C.

      Skin test

    • D.

      Hair sample

    Correct Answer
    C. Skin test
    Explanation
    A skin test is used to detect a disease by administering a small amount of the suspected allergen or antigen into the skin. If a person is allergic or infected with the disease, they will develop a localized reaction at the site of the injection. This reaction can help diagnose certain diseases such as tuberculosis, allergies, or autoimmune disorders. Therefore, a skin test is a method commonly used to detect diseases by observing the body's immune response.

    A. Dark urine
    B. Lasting fever
    C. Loss of apetite
    Explanation
    The correct answer includes three possible side effects of medication: dark urine, lasting fever, and loss of appetite. These side effects can occur as a result of taking certain medications. Dark urine may indicate liver problems or dehydration. A lasting fever could be a sign of an allergic reaction or infection. Loss of appetite can occur due to the medication affecting the digestive system or causing nausea. It is important to be aware of these potential side effects and consult a healthcare professional if they occur.

    A fundamental way to prevent disease is to ____________

    Correct Answer(s)
    finish your entire course of medication
    Explanation
    Finishing the entire course of medication is a fundamental way to prevent disease because it ensures that all the bacteria or viruses causing the disease are completely eliminated from the body. When medication is stopped prematurely, there is a risk of leaving behind a few remaining pathogens that can develop resistance to the medication and cause a relapse or spread the infection to others. Completing the full course of medication helps to ensure that the infection is fully treated and reduces the chances of recurrence or transmission to others.

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    Tuberculosis in animals can be transmitted through contaminated food. This means that if an animal with tuberculosis is slaughtered and its meat is consumed without proper cooking or pasteurization, the bacteria can be transmitted to humans or other animals. It is important to handle and cook meat properly to prevent the spread of tuberculosis and other diseases.

    C. Dry cough
    Explanation
    The correct answer is loss in milk production and dry cough. These symptoms are commonly observed in animals with tuberculosis. Tuberculosis can affect the respiratory system, leading to a dry cough. It can also affect the udder, causing inflammation and a decrease in milk production. These symptoms are important indicators for diagnosing tuberculosis in animals.

    Growing bacteria in lab diagnosis takes longer than the tuberculine test

    • A.

      True

    • B.

      False

    Correct Answer
    A. True
    Explanation
    The statement is true because growing bacteria in a lab for diagnosis purposes typically takes longer than conducting a tuberculin test. Growing bacteria in a lab involves culturing the bacteria sample, allowing it to grow and multiply, and then analyzing it for identification and testing purposes. This process can take several days or even weeks. On the other hand, a tuberculin test is a simple skin test that involves injecting a small amount of tuberculin into the skin and observing the reaction within 48 to 72 hours. Therefore, the process of growing bacteria in a lab for diagnosis is generally more time-consuming compared to a tuberculin test.
