Border agent ignored warning for TB traveler –

May 31, 2007

The “super bug” is a medication resistant strain of disease that can’t be cured. The insistance of my kids’ teachers to send anti-bacterial soap, and people not finishing their antibiotics is only adding to the risk. Recently a man who had been diagnosed with TB, flew on a plane to his wedding and honeymoon in Italy, then found out that it was a drug resistant strain, so he sneaks in via Canada. Kudos to TSA for the notice being distributed, but the border agent disregarded the notice and let the doofus in. I hope it wasn’t a shotgun wedding and that he hasn’t reproduced yet… The link below is an AP article.
