If you knew you had TB, why would you board a plane?

A woman from India boarded an international flight, knowing she had TB. Now passengers on that same flight are now testing positive for TB. How unfair is that? Maybe people should have to get screened for such things prior to flying internationally.

That's completely preposterous! When I was in Thailand applying for a UK visa I was asked to undergo a TB test. They said it's a new policy for people who wants to enter the UK for at least 6 months. That means if you are only staying for a month or two you won't have to undergo TB test which is not good. Everyone should be tested and carry a certificate especially if they are flying international. Otherwise the disease can spread worldwide very easily.
