The C-D-C issued a warning Tuesday to passengers on Trans-Atlantic flights earlier this month. Tests show a male traveler had a drug resistant case of T-B.
C-D-C officials say the infected man flew from Atlanta to Paris on May 12th and returned by flying from Prague to Montreal on May 24th. He then drove across the border.
Tuberculosis is an airborne bacterial infection that primarily affects the lungs.C-D-C officials are urging passengers on these flights to get tested for T-B, although the chance they are infected is slim.
