Tuberculosis is caused by a bacterium – Koch’s wand. Most often, tuberculosis is transmitted by airborne droplets. When coughing and sneezing, the patient, along with droplets of sputum and saliva, releases the causative agent of tuberculosis into the environment. Inhalation of mycobacteria leads to infection. Koch’s bacillus can remain active for a long time in mold or dust. Inhaling contaminated dust, a person can also become infected with tuberculosis. This route of transmission of the disease is called airborne dust.
