Stop Deporting Latent Tuberculosis Patients

Hidden Truth : Mantoux test or Skin Test or P.P.D test (wikipaedia), here is the link: proves it false.

Clearly mentions, Mantoux test results can be false positive(50-50).

Doctors are bound to hide this fact since their salary meter is ON and 95% deportation happens on Mantoux test only for your info.

Hidden Truth : Now, Quantiferon Gold test seems accurate in results, but this test also shows false positive results, here is the link : proves it false.

Even if a person without scar or never had old or active TB in his life , his test reports will show positive results. Try Mantoux and Quantiferon 2-3 times you will know the secret facts.

Useless test : Sputum test can only detect active TB , so it is completely impotent. 99 out of 100 comes negative. 

For your confirmation, as on date no test  has been developed to declare old tuberculosis in the body. That is why international organisations do not recognize these tests to confirm some one's medical illness in the past. It is just a rumor to harass someone. That't it.


X-rays failed : Last but not the least, there are more than 40 reasons for lung scarring. Here is the link : proves it false. 

Suggestion : If you do not have active tuberculosis and the hospital forces you to take TB medicines, please do not accept it . It has severe side effects on your healthy body. Unless you have active TB or severe situation.
