Why journalists should stop overlooking tuberculosis coverage


"March 24 was World TB Day, which every year commemorates the anniversary of when scientist Robert Koch announced that he had discovered the Mycobacterium tuberculosis bacteria that causes TB in 1882. Late March is therefore an ideal time to take stock of what progress has been made in fighting TB, which, until COVID-19, was the world’s deadliest infectious disease. This post includes an overview of that progress as well as resources and story ideas for reporting on TB."
