Tuberculosis (TB) remains the world’s most dangerous infectious disease, but after the year 2000, about 5.4 million deaths due to TB can be avoided due to global efforts. World Health Organization (WHO) gave this information on Tuesday. According to the report of Xinhua news agency, WHO said in its latest 2018 Global TB report that different countries are still not doing much to eliminate it by 2030.

With this, the WHO also asked 50 heads of state and government to make decisive decisions in this regard, which will probably participate in the first high level meeting of TB on next week. It has been reported in the report that there has been some reduction in the number of people killed in TB in the last few years. According to an estimate in 2017, 10 million people were infected with TB and 16 lakh deaths, including 3 lakh HIV-positive people. New cases of TB have come down by 2 percent.

However, the cases of undereorting and non-diagnosis (under-diagnosis) in TB case remain a major challenge. Of the 10 million people who died in TB in 2017, only 64 lakh cases were registered officially in the National Reporting System, out of which 36 lakh people were not treated or identified but the disease was not reported. According to the report, to meet the target of ending TB by 2030 till 2025, treatment coverage will be increased to 64 percent to 90 percent.
