Most TB victims do not realize they are infected for more than a year. During this time they infect an average of 5 other people.
See the TB stats below. Over 2 Billion people are infected and more than half of them do not even know it yet. You can be cured if you catch it in time. We can prevent infection and cut the chain of infection by 50%-70% within 3 years since most people get infected in hospitals, prisons, and schools.
Most people only get tested for TB when they are admitted to a hospital for another unrelated problem. People in China, Brazil, and India make the fewest trips to hospitals.
Although coughing and sneezing are the most common ways to transmit TB, they are not the only way
Because Tuberculosis is transmitted by a micro-bacteria, our Guardian machines can break the chain of infection. Although we may never completely eliminate TB, our technology could reduce infection rates by 50% if used in hospitals, schools, and prisons where most infection takes place.
Cigarette smokers have the highest incident rate of TB infection. When they cough or sneeze, others within 10 feet are at risk.
Current mortality rates of Respiratory TB are 10%-24%. This rate increases to 40%+ for Gastrointestinal TB
Symptoms only appear in the active phase of infection which delays discovery and treatment. If you have any of these symptoms get yourself a TB test as soon as possible..
Respiratory Tuberculosis has a 10% mortality rate. Our tech can cut this rate by 50%=70% if our Guardian machines are put in hospitals, schools, and subways. We even designed a unit for crowded elevators
Treatments have grown more effective over the last 20 years but the latency prolongs diagnosis and smokers remain the highest risk group along with those exposed to large crowds on a regular basis
TB is caused by a bacteria NOT a virus. This bacteria can be weaponized as a bio-weapon and some say that this was already done years ago. We have no way to confirm this but our Guardian machine can keep the bacteria from infecting people at work and in their homes, and the hospitals, schools. markets, theaters, etc they may visit. Unfortunately we offer no solution for gastro-intestinal TB - only pulmonary TB the most common and infectious form. Your first defense is your own immune system. Keep it healthy and strong!
