Tuberculosis Scarf (Blue & Red)
Based on the Mycobacterium tuberculosis pathogen, this necktie pattern is faithful to the slide, right down to the “red snappers. ” It probably tops the Awareables “best-seller” list. TB, an age-old bacterial pathogen transmitted by airborne droplets, remains the greatest infectious killer in the history of man. It has re-emerged to pose a serious global threat, causing more than 2 million deaths each year, primarily in developing countries. Its multi-drug resistant (MDRTB) form is particularly dangerous and growing more wide-spread where crowded conditions and non-compliance to strict drug regimens are common.
