TB is transmitted through droplets while coughing. This occurs when there is a lung cavity due to TB (open case - sputum positive). Once effective treatment is started sputum becomes negative for TB bacillus within 2 months or so and the patient is no longer infective. You can do a sputum test after 3 months and confirm the status.
