No need to panic over outbreak of TB in school  Listenfacebook
The chairwoman of the Hong Kong Lung Foundation Dr Maureen Wong says there is no need to panic over an outbreak of tuberculosis in a secondary school in Sha Tin. The Kiangsu-Chekiang College has confirmed that seven of its students and a teacher have contracted the airborne disease. Dr Wong says vaccinations against TB are very effective but there could be cases where the desired results may not be achieved. She spoke to Jim Gould.
