Each patient in a genetic cluster was examined to determine the following: 1) the period of infectivity (by reviewing date of diagnosis, disease type, smear status, chest radiology results, and date treatment started), 2) name of contacts identified, and 3) how and where the patient spent his or her time during the period of infectivity.
