No. It is a bacteria which transmits through airborne infections
How is tuberculosis transmitted?
Tuberculosis is spread through air droplets which are expelled when persons with infectious TB disease cough, sneeze, speak, or sing. Close contacts (persons with prolonged, frequent, or intense contact) are at highest risk of becoming infected (22 percent infection rate).
But if you have had a needle-stick from a patient who has TB, you MUST get screened and get treatment as needed for blood borne viruses including Hep B and HIV, because TB is found in similar high risk groups of people....so go get medical advice
