TB patient testifies to Congress

DENVER, Mo. - The traveling TB patient testified to Congress Wednesday about the public health threat he posed.
Andrew Speaker spoke by phone from Denver where he's hospitalized with a rare form of tuberculosis.
He said he complied with all instructions from his medical doctor and other health officials. He added that he did not try to go "running off" or hide from people.
Another issue is the security breach that allowed Speaker into the United States despite health alerts.
U.S. border patrol says it will now involve supervisors more when screening people entering the country.
