The Ministry of Health believes that people who have recovered from covid-19 are more prone to contracting tuberculosis.
The agency recommends changing the procedure for examining covid patients and include additional tests. Additional measures are caused by the spread of pulmonary fibosis among the recovered.
In the new recommendations of the ministry, it is noted that tuberculosis infection can develop simultaneously with covid-19 or after a disease provoked by this virus. Therefore, this type of patient should be examined more carefully.
According to scientists, the coronavirus can greatly worsen the condition of people suffering from tuberculosis – writes MedicForum.
