Tuberculosis

My girlfriend has been diagnosed with MDR TB and I want to know if there is any risk that I may have it too. I don't have any symptoms as such but I've read that TB can be latent too. Very little cough, sore throat, but no fever, aches or nausea etc. Plz advice.

Hi, As TB is a air borne disease.
Persons who are in close contact are at the higher risk of developing TB..
