Sharp Upturn in Finding People With TB Globally

New results from WHO's Global TB Report show that the percentage of people "missed" by health systems after failing to be diagnosed, treated or reported has dropped significantly. TB remains the world's biggest infectious killer, with 1.5 million people still dying of the disease in 2018, even though it is fully preventable and curable.
