TB Case Confirmed at USF

Officials with the Hillsborough County Health Department confirmed that a University of South Florida student has tuberculosis, the Tampa Bay Times reports.

About 90 people who came into contact with the student will be tested for the disease. The last time TB was reported on the USF campus was in May 2012.

Originally founded in December 2006 as an independent grassroots publication dedicated to coverage of health issues in Florida, Health News Florida was acquired by WUSF Public Media in September 2012.
