Tuberculosis now ranks alongside HIV as the world’s biggest killing infectious disease, the World Health Organisation (WHO) says.
The WHO has said that Tuberculosis figures of between 1.1 million and 1.2 million deaths in 2014 were unacceptable for a disease that is curable. It added that the statistics were disheartening and warned that the world was losing ground on tackling resistant forms of TB.
WHO, however, says it will shift to end TB by cutting deaths by 90 percent by 2030.
