THE Andalusian Health Service (SAS) has activated its infectious diseases plan after detecting an outbreak of tuberculosis among migrants rescued from two drifting boats.
Two out of the 90 people had to be hospitalised after they were brought to Malaga port on September 13. They have now tested positive for the disease.
National Police, lawyers, Red Cross workers and Maritime Rescue personnel who came into contact with the migrants have already been warned. They will have to undergo a medical review that will determine if it is necessary to do more tests or for them to be treated.
The tests are being viewed as a precaution as the risk of becoming infected are low in such a short time frame of exposure experienced by the people who dealt with them.
