NYTimes reports very very drug resistant TB is spreading from person to person.
be afraid, be ery afraid...
This potential epidemic has been smouldering for years, and one of these days it will stop merely killing 1.8 million people each year and become a major problem. (yes, I'm being sarcastic).
Grescham College had a talk about the history of TB, aka The White Plague. LINK
the YaleOpen Courseware has a series of lectures on infectious diseases here.
Lecture 18 and 19 are about TB.
