The National University Hospital Singapore (NUH) is recalling 178 pediatric patients - including 131 under the age of two years - who had been cared for by a nurse now confirmed to have tuberculosis.

 

They include 34 children who have received a transplanted organ. These children are on immunosuppression drugs and therefore at higher risk than normal children.

 

Associate Professor Daniel Goh, head of pediatrics at NUH, said the risk of any of the children contracting TB from the nurse is "very low", especially as she had donned a mask while working. But the hospital is not taking any chances and is recalling patients who had been in ward 47 since July.
