Research has revealed about 95% of Ghanaians have latent Tuberculosis (TB), a condition where the body system itself is able to fight the TB bacteria to stop them from growing.

Ghana National TB Voice Network’s Jerry Amoah Larbi has disclosed in an interview with Ark News’ Kwasi Kyei Baffour at media engagement organized by CHAG Community System in a Accra.

The Coordinator listed symptoms and signs of latent Tuberculosis patients.

“People who have latent TB infection never develop TB disease. In these people, the TB bacteria remain inactive for a lifetime without causing disease”.

“But in other people, especially people who have a weak immune system, the bacteria become active, multiply, and cause TB disease”, Mr. Larbi stated.

He added that: “In most people who breathe in TB bacteria and become infected, the body is able to fight the bacteria to stop them from growing”, calling for immediate medical care should one experience continues cough for more than two weeks.
