"Isolation is most commonly used when a patient has a viral illness"?[edit]

Am working on Infection control right now, but when I get a chance I'll come back to address this statement (quoted from this article's lede) more fully. I'm not confident that this statement is true, and even if it is, regional variation would make it untrue in many settings. For example, in areas where tuberculosis (especially highly resistant forms) is a major problem, isolation for suspected tuberculosis is prominent. -- Scray (talk) 02:14, 5 December 2009 (UTC)
