How can you prevent drug-resistant TB?

  • Always wash your hands after coughing
  • Always cover your mouth and nose with the inside of your elbow when you cough or sneeze
  • Cover your mouth and nose with a tissue when you cough or sneeze and throw it away into a dustbin.
  • Open the windows in your home because sunlight kills TB germs and fresh air can blow the germs away
  • If you have drug-resistant TB, make sure that people you spend a lot of time with (at home or work or school) are tested for TB at the nearest clinic.
