Molecular, Spatial, and Field Epidemiology Suggesting TB Transmission in Community, Not Hospital, Gaborone, Botswana
*Only 21/24 cluster-associated patients were reachable for interview regarding epidemiologic links associated with contacts, combi routes used, and places of socialization and worship.
†Hospital visits for 2 patients overlapped, but tuberculosis transmission between them probably did not occur because the patients were hospitalized in separate buildings and the time between tuberculosis exposure and treatment initiation (13 d) is an extremely short time for disease to develop.
