Colorado Springs, Colo. (AP) Health officials say they've identified 160 people who have had close contact with a 19-year-old woman who died of tuberculosis last week.

Kalpana Dangol of Nepal lived in Colorado Springs and was a nursing student at Colorado State University at Pueblo.

Officials are looking for those 160 people now and letting them know they should be tested for the disease. Many of them are also students who attended classes with her. They have probably left campus for the summer but officials say they're tracking them down.
