Follow-up on "Globalisation of Public Health?!?"

Here is a follow-on report on the earlier blog, and to quote from it,

"The agency is focusing only on American citizens, said Julie L. Gerberding, the director of the centers; she said other nations should be contacting their own citizens. The passengers are being advised to have tuberculosis tests immediately, and to have follow-up tests in several weeks."

But ........ if these people do not heed this advice they may be blissfully unaware that they may be infected/infective and may continue to spread the tubercle bacillus and continue to be a global public health threat.
