Abstract

During international air travel individuals stay in a closed environment which might lead to a risk of transmission of respiratory infectious diseases such as tuberculosis carried by infectious travellers. Tracing exposed passengers requires international cooperation and assistance from relevant authorities. We describe an investigation among fellow passengers to a traveller with sputum positive pulmonary tuberculosis.
