TAMPA, Fla. - A University of South Florida student has been diagnosed with tuberculosis.

It's the second case at the school this year.

The Hillsborough County Health Department says the student is being treated and is recovering in isolation.

About 30 other students, faculty, staff, and people in the community may have been exposed to the student.

They've been notified, and the health department plans to begin testing them next week.

The earlier case was in February and doesn't appear to be related to this case.

TB usually infects the lungs.

People who are infected spread the disease when they cough, talk, or sneeze.
