World Tuberculosis Day


ILLINOIS – Today is World TB Day, to raise awareness that TB is still a big health problem and to let everyone know how important it is to finish their treatment, once it’s started.

For the first time in 10 years, Tuberculosis cases are up in the state of Illinois. 344 cases have been reported in the state, including one extreme case that was too strong for the usual antibiotics.

Many patients stop taking treatment when they feel better, but the symptoms are still circulating and TB may return.
