A very nasty disease. My white, middle-class, educated pal almost died of it. He loaned the use of his couch to someone he should not have for a month. Did not know any better.

I didn't realize TB was still a problem here.

Whatever happened to that immigrant from SM that had the antibiotic resistant form of the disease but refused to be quarantined and took off? Did they ever catch him?

Talk about a scary disease!

Of course, there are domestic and international sources of TB in the US. Would it be safe to assume that developed countries are more successful in TB surveillance, treatment, and control than poorer ones? I've never understood why public health officials here have been so demure about border enforcement, except that their political bosses would be displeased or that they have decided to ignore some tenets of epidemiology.

He who shall not be named in the federal administration was told that our economy is based on consumption, so he's cutting the medical and science research budgets to increase the prevalence of consumption.
