Oregon Zoo Employees Infected by Tuberculosis after Exposure to Elephants

Seven workers at the Oregon Zoo in Portland were infected with tuberculosis (TB) following an outbreak starting in 2013 among three bull elephants. According to a report published by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the seven people who developed a latent tuberculosis infection had close contact with the elephants. An eighth person, also developed a mysterious case of tuberculosis. The report adds to the somewhat thin knowledge about the transmission of TB from elephants to people. The good news is that even though TB is highly contagious, the three infected elephants at the zoo did not spread the disease to visitors and foreigners.
