The World marked Tuberculosis Day on the 24 of March, 2016 with a call by the World Health Organization(WHO) for new commitments and new action in the global fight against tuberculosis, which is now one of the world’s top infectious killer disease.

Speaking on the occasion organized by Star Deepwater to mark this year World TB Day, The Health Minister, Prof. Isaac Adewole announced that the country is still recording as many as 250,000 deaths every year from the disease, while there is a ‘’distressing’’ rise in cases of undetected and undiagnosed tuberculosis in the country. He also said that the implication is that only one out of six cases of tuberculosis roaming around are detected, in other words no one is safe.
