Tuberculosis: The Facts

Tuberculosis is a respiratory bacterial illness that affects approximately 25% of the global population, killing 1.5 million people every year. More people die of tuberculosis than HIV or malaria. Tuberculosis may lay in a dormant state in the lungs (latent tuberculosis) before turning into active tuberculosis. When diagnosed, most tuberculosis cases can be cured through antibiotic treatment.

The 1918 influenza pandemic was the most severe pandemic in recent history. The number of deaths was estimated to be at least 50 million worldwide with about 675,000 occurring in the United States.
