Really Dumb




Tuberculosis is a very serious sickness caused by germs that can make people very sick. It mostly affects the lungs and can make it hard to breathe. It spreads when people cough or sneeze and release tiny germs into the air that others can breathe in. For example, if someone in a classroom has tuberculosis and coughs without covering their mouth, they can spread the germs to other kids in the room. This is why it’s important to cover your mouth when you cough and wash your hands often to prevent getting sick. One verifiable fact is that over 10 million people get sick with tuberculosis each year, and it is one of the top 10 causes of death worldwide. This shows how serious the sickness is and why it’s important to prevent its spread.
