TB Patient To Recieve Care In Denver

Last updated on Thursday, May 31, 2007

(UNDATED) - A man who triggered an international hunt for people he may have exposed to a rare form of tuberculosis will be heading to Denver for treatment.

In the meantime, local and state health officials say they are keeping their eyes peeled.

Tina Feaster is a tuberculosis specialist for the State Department of Health. She says the Centers for Disease Control is providing itineraries for anyone who sat near the man.

Feaster also says, while Indiana has not had a major TB outbreak recently, health officials are prepared should something like this happen.
