Microbiologists from neighbouring hospitals were informed and performed similar exercises.
In the light of information suggesting more cases outside the original district, a PHLS/Communicable Disease Surveillance Centre (CDSC) multi-district Incident Control Committee was formed in June 2000.
Conclusions: The investigation of the outbreak revealed significant problems on an individual patient and population based level including difficulties with contact tracing, compliance, and the risk of developing multidrug resistance.
This incident has demonstrated the value of molecular strain typing in investigating an extensive outbreak of TB.
