I landed on Andrew Speaker last week with all four feet and a couple of readers have since pointed out that I was probably out of bounds. If he knew what we know now about the communicability of his infection, he was certainly not sociopathic nor grossly irresponsible. Sorry.
But he was jerky and irresponsible; the risk of causing another case among the other passengers (very small) and his bride (not so small; TB is spread by prolonged intimate contact) is the product of the probability of infection, the number of people at risk, and the severity of the disease. The treatment he’s receiving now, which may involve loss of piece of his lung, is an indicator of the last factor. The benefit for which he imposed those risks on unconsenting strangers (and the young lady) against specific expert advice was to have a wedding and a honeymoon at a time and place of his choosing, both events that could have been rescheduled at some cost and disappointment.
Jerky and irresponsible; a wedding is pretty small potatoes compared to a marriage and this is not a good way to begin the latter.
