Fear in Barcelona: TB and crisis

Up to 392 new TB patients were diagnosed in Barcelona last year, only half of them being  immigrants. A new article in the newspaper “La Vanguardia” published today the data, including a comment of Dr. Caylà, responsible of the Epidemiology of the Agència de Salut Pública de Barcelona.  Disseminating news related to TB  in mass media helps the population to know and understand better TB, thus from here we want to congratulate and encourage these activities.
