The CDC says many people in the world have been exposed to tuberculosis, as it is easily spread through coughing or spittle.
The all-clear has been given on the Johns Hopkins campus after a hazmat scare Thursday after a small tube with a frozen sample of tuberculosis was dropped and the lid came off. The sample fell somewhere on an internal bridge, which connects the Cancer Research Building 1 of the hospital to the Cancer Research Building 2.
Hospital employees said that a fire alarm was pulled and they were told to evacuate.

Approximately 10.4 million people globally became sick with tuberculosis in the same year. "So far, all indications are that no other individuals have been exposed, however, the buildings will remain evacuated until cleared by public safety officials", the statement read. Authorities said employees on the site do not need to do additional tests as authorities declared no incidence of health risks. However, in the United States, the disease is gradually becoming rare. In 2016, only 9,272 TB cases were reported, the lowest toll recorded yet.
