    Auckland University staff and students are being asked to be on alert for tuberculosis symptoms -- after a confirmed case

    Auckland University staff and students are being asked to be on alert for tuberculosis symptoms -- after a confirmed case


    The Regional Public Health was notified a student has the disease and is following up with people who have taken or taught three courses.

    They include med-sci-203, med-sci-205 and chem-390.

    It says the risk of being infected is low, and fewer than 10 students are identified as needing follow-up.

    Some symptoms of tuberculosis include a persistent cough, unexplained weight loss and sweating -- especially at night.
