More than 100 sailors test positive for TB

Navy officials say more than 100 sailors have tested positive for exposure to tuberculosis after their recent tour aboard the aircraft carrier Ronald Reagan. The testing began early last month after medical personal discovered that a petty officer first class had active tuberculosis.

The ship had been on a six-month deployment that included visits to Australia, Singapore, Malaysia and the Persian Gulf. Authorities say no one else from the ship has come down with the lung infection.
