CDC: Stronger Effort Needed to Fight Tuberculosis

Although preliminary tuberculosis (TB) surveillance data for 2016 demonstrate slight declines in the number and incidence of U.S. TB cases since 2015 (a drop of 2.7 percent in the number of reported cases and a 3.4 percent drop in incidence, or number of cases per 100,000 people), the goal of eliminating the disease will not be reached by the end of this century if these slow rates of decline continue. That's according to a Morbidity and Mortality Weekly Report,  the CDC published on March 24.
"The findings suggest that unless progress against TB is accelerated in the United States, we will not be able to eliminate TB in the near future, or even this century," said Philip LoBue, M.D., director of the CDC's Division of Tuberculosis Elimination at the National Center for HIV/AIDS, Viral Hepatitis, STD and TB Prevention, in
a March 23 statement marking World TB Day.
